The severity of this problem varies from people to people in some cases it is mild while with others have to face the severe form of this disease.The onset of this disorder may be sudden or it might take some time to settle in. In this case the first attack may last for as much as three to four months, and the recurrences may happen for years to come. Children are not generally affected by this problem. The recurrence always takes place at the initial site of the first attack. An excess of pigment usually develop in the affected skin as the lesions persist.
