Are you trying hard to hide your Vitiligo patches? Well, you should know that you can treat them with homeopathy. Vitiligo is an autoimmune skin condition that results in the loss of melanin pigment. Read on to know more about Vitiligo causes, symptoms and treatment.
Vitiligo takes place when melanin-forming cells fail to produce melanin pigment. In most cases, a combination of auto-immune, genetic and environmental factors have been seen as the causes of Vitiligo. Vitiligo may also be caused by stress, which affects the immune system, causing the body to react and mistakenly destroy the melanocytes by releasing antibodies against them. Genetics has been strongly proposed as one of the Vitiligo causes. NALP1 gene is the trigger in inclining people to Vitiligo. Additionally, Vitiligo is said to be associated and affecting people with certain auto-immune and inflammatory diseases, namely:
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Addison’s Disease
- Alopecia Areata
- Pernicious Anaemia
List of things that can trigger Vitiligo in an individual genetically predisposed for Vitiligo are as follows:
- Emotional stress
- Exposure to some de-pigmenting chemicals
- Skin rash
- Skin trauma
The main Vitiligo symptom is the sudden onset of a single, few or many milky white patches of irregular shapes and sizes on the skin. Small areas of de-pigmentation gradually start spreading to involve larger areas of the body. The patches appear more prominent on dark-skinned people and can be quite scarring at times. As far as the progress and reasons for white spots on the skin are concerned, they are highly unpredictable. Some cases experience an extremely fast advancement, with quick involvement of large areas of the body, whereas in some cases, there may be a few small patches that do not change much with time. The active phase of development of new patches can be followed by a phase that does not present any new patches. Following are some of the Vitiligo symptoms.
- Depigmentation firstly appears on the sun-exposed areas of skin such as hands, feet, arms, face and lips.
- Genitalia may also affect.
- Loss of the colour of the inner layer of the eyes.
- Loss of the colour of the tissue that lines the inside of the mouth.
- Pigment loss produces milky white patches on the skin.
- Premature whitening of the hair on scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, beard.
- The skin affected by Vitiligo can be itching or feels painful.
Prognosis with homeopathic treatment depends on certain criteria such as the location, duration, extent of spread and disease activity. It also depends on the general health of the patient and the presence of other systemic illnesses such as thyroid disorders, auto-immune diseases, etc. Even after starting the treatment, the patient may notice the occurrence of some new spots; nevertheless, this is because it takes some time to control the disease activity and balance the immune system.
