It is a condition in which the skin and hair are white in colour due to lack of melanin. Melanin is responsible for giving colour to the hair, eyes and skin. Albinism is a genetically transmitted condition. Kids with albinism are normal in all respects. They only need to take care of their skin by staying out of the sun as far as possible, and using sunscreen and an umbrella when outdoors. They should protect their eyes by using sunglasses when outdoors.
