Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a long-term condition that causes pale, white patches to develop on the skin due to the lack of a chemical called melanin. Vitiligo can affect any area of your skin, but most commonly occurs on skin exposed to the sun, such as your face, neck and hands.

VITILIGO

The condition varies from person to person. Some people only get a few small, white patches, but others get bigger white patches that join up across large areas of their skin. There is no way of predicting how much skin will be affected. The white patches are usually permanent.

CAUSES OF VITILIGO

  1. Vitiligo occurs due to a lack of melanin in the affected areas of skin. Melanin, which is produced by specialised skin cells called melanocytes, gives your skin its colour and protects it from the sun.
  2. It’s not clear exactly what causes this lack of melanin, but it has been linked to problems with the immune system (autoimmune conditions) and nerve endings in the skin
  3. Certain things can increase your chances of developing vitiligo, such as a family history of the condition or having another autoimmune problem, like an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism)
  4. Vitiligo is not caused by an infection and you cannot catch it from contact with someone who has it

SYMPTOMS OF VITILIGO

  1. Visible white patches in any part of body are first and foremost sign.
  2. Common area of their presence in sun-exposed areas like ex tensor surfaces, for example arms, legs, feet, hand, face, lips, etc.
  3. They can also appear in armpits, groin, genitals, eye, retina, navel, around mouth, nostrils, etc.
  4. They can be focal (in few areas) or generalized.
  5. They can be even present on one side of body (Segmental).

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT

Homeopathic treatment for Vitiligo helps to increase vitality & thereby stimulate melanocytes to produce Melanin. Homeopathy works on the basis of individualization in which importance is given to the man in disease rather than just disease in man. Each remedy is carefully prescribed after taking complete physical and mental history of the patient in treatment for Vitiligo.
