Vitiligo Treatment

Dermatitis is a type of skin condition in which the skin pigmentation decreases and white spots appear in irregular shapes and sizes. Although the true cause of vitiligo is still debated, it is thought to be an autoimmune disease in which the cells that make brown pigment are destroyed. This is definitely not a medical problem but a purely cosmetic one. Dermatitis is thought to be inherited and can occur in the face, elbows, arms and legs and genitals for any gender at any age.

What is Vitiligo Treatment?

The total area of ​​skin that can be affected by vitiligo varies from person to person. It can also affect the eyes, the inside of the mouth, and the hair. In most cases, the affected area remains pale for the rest of the person’s life, the condition being light sensitive. This means that the affected areas will be more sensitive than those that are not exposed to sunlight.

It is difficult to say whether the patches will spread or not. Spreads can take weeks or patches can last months or years. Pale spots are more common in people with black or tanned skin.

What are the types of vitiligo?

Vitiligo can be:

  • Generalized, which is the most common type, when macules appear in various places on the body.
  • Segmental, which is restricted to one side of the body or one area, such as the hands or face.
  • Mucosal, which affects mucous membranes of the mouth and/or the genitals.
  • Focal, which is a rare type in which the macules are in a small area and do not spread in a certain pattern within one to two years.
  • Trichome, which means that there is a white or colorless center, then an area of lighter pigmentation, and then an area of normally colored skin.
  • Universal, another rare type of vitiligo, and one in which more than 80% of the skin of the body lacks pigment.

What causes vitiligo?

Although the causes of vitiligo aren’t completely understood, there are a number of different theories:

  • Autoimmune disorder: The affected person’s immune system may develop antibodies that destroy melanocytes.
  • Genetic factors: Certain factors that may increase the chance of getting vitiligo can be inherited. About 30% of vitiligo cases run in families.
  • Neurogenic factors: A substance that is toxic to melanocytes may be released at nerve endings in the skin.
  • Self-destruction: A defect in the melanocytes causes them to destroy themselves.
