Hi Ashlynn Smalls,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER. Have you been diagnosed with this condition? Vitiligo is a disorder in which white patches develop on the skin. The patches may also appear in the hair, eyes, and mouth. Michael Jackson most notably had the condition. Patches may appear on any part of the body. Trichrome means the patches appear to have three colors (darker pigment, mid-range pigment, and lighter pigment).

For more information check out the Vitiligo page:
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
