Vitiligo, also known as leucoderma is an autoimmune skin disease wherein the immune system of the body mistakenly attacks the healthy skin cells. The condition is characterised by white patches on the skin that develop as a result of depleting melanocytes (melanin producing cells), within the skin.

According to the Vitiligo Research Foundation, the prevalence of vitiligo is estimated to be around 0.5% to 2% worldwide. Once perceived as merely a cosmetic disorder, leucoderma is increasingly recognised for its devastating psychological effects. This white skin disease is not contagious or life-threatening. However, this skin whitening disease can be depressing and stigmatising, especially for individuals with dark skin. This is because vitiligo is more noticeable in people with a darker skin tone.

There is no medical treatment that can cure vitiligo in 30 days and there is no way to prevent the skin condition. The objective of the vitiligo treatment is to restore pigmentation and prevent depigmentation from affecting more areas of your skin.

What Are the Symptoms of Vitiligo?

  1. There can be an appearance of pale/white spots or patchy areas of depigmented skin on the body surface area. Depigmentation can occur on any part of the body, but primarily it affects the areas that are exposed to the sun, such as the face, lips, hands, elbows and arms. Leucoderma can also cause the loss of colour in the tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose (mucous membranes or mucosa).

  2. Vitiligo can cause hair greying on the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard or other hairy areas of the body.

  3. Vitiligo can also affect the pigments present in the retina (inner layer) of the eyes, causing loss or alterationin its colour.

  4. If an individual with white spots gets hurt, he/she is prone to develop similar white patches on the skin in that area.

  5. The white patches are generally painless, without any itching or sensitivity. However, when exposed to excessive heat or perspiration; there can be irritation, redness or a burning sensation on the skin.

It is important to understand that vitiligo skin disease is not associated with leprosy (chronic infectious disease caused by mycobacterium leprae). Some individuals also consider this disease to be psoriasis, which is characterised by some dry and rough patches on the skin. However, psoriasis patches are generally red, raised and inflamed areas on the skin. It is important to understand that vitiligo doesn’t affect your ability to perform daily activities. It is one’s perception about this skin condition and vitiligo symptoms that is responsible for the social stigma.

What Causes Vitiligo?

The causes of vitiligo aren’t clearly understood; there can be a number of factors associated:

Autoimmune disorder: The affected person’s immune system may develop antibodies due to some autoimmune disorder that destroy melanocytes (melanin producing cells).

Genetic factors: As per a research study by the American Vitiligo Research Foundation (AVRF), over 30% of the affected individuals may report a positive family history. Individuals from families with an increased prevalence of thyroid disease or diabetes are at a risk of developing white patches. Together, predisposing (genetic) and precipitating (environmental) factors can contribute to the occurrence of vitiligo.

Neurogenic factors: A substance that is toxic to melanocytes can be released at the nerve endings in the skin.

Self-destruction: The defects in the melanocytes may cause them to destroy themselves.

It’s also possible that a combination of physical and emotional stress is responsible for the vitiligo disease. If you are seeking vitiligo treatment, consult a skin doctor about the best treatment options.

Vitiligo Treatment in Homeopathy

According to a research study published in the US National Library of Medicine, vitiligo treatment is possible with individualized homeopathy medicine. The best results were achieved in the patients who received homeopathy treatment — with appearance of the early signs of this skin disease. As leukoderma is an auto-immune disorder, homeopathic medicines provide an effective and comprehensive treatment by regulating the immune system. Homeopathy, thus targets the root cause of the ailment. In the vitiligo disease, the melanocytes (melanin-producing cells present beneath the skin) are damaged. Homeopathic medicines activate the melanin cells to produce the melanin pigment and restore the natural colour of the skin. Homeopathic medicines provide a safe, natural and restorative vitiligo treatment.

The homeopathy treatment for vitiligo is principally aimed at curbing or slowing the further destruction of melanocytes and stimulating repigmentation in the existing white patches and not vitiligo cure. The scope of homeopathic vitiligo treatment goes beyond the physical symptoms and the approach is more holistic in nature. Homeopathy also addresses the underlying conditions like stress and depression that are observed in vitiligo patients and improves their Health-Related Quality of Life (HQL). Although it is nearly impossible today to cure vitiligo in 30 days or to achieve complete vitiligo cure, homeopathy vitiligo treatment can help in keeping the condition under control and improve the emotional well-being of the patient.

Most importantly, homeopathic medicines are safe because they are made from natural ingredients and therefore treat patients without causing any side-effects.
