Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has defended vitiligo in the name of her man, David Eason, who has the skin condition.
Jenelle hit back at trolls after cruel remarks were made about his skin – and called for more to be done to raise awareness of the skin condition.
Calling for more to be done to raise awareness of the condition, Jenelle reminded the public that vitiligo, which causes the skin pigment to disappear, is not contagious.
Vitiligo is an auto-immune disorder that doctors still don’t know a lot about. The cause is unknown although many believe the onset is due to a combination of genetic and/or environmental factors that have not been identified.
