What is Vitiligo & its causes?

As a result of vitiligo, patches of skin lose their colour. Time usually increases the size of the discoloured areas. Any part of the body can be affected by the condition. It can also appear inside the mouth and affect the hair as well.

The colour of the hair and skin is determined by the presence of melanin. Vitiligo occurs as the cells that produce melanin stop functioning or even die. Vitiligo can appear on people of any skin type, that being said, it is more significant on people with brown or black skin. While vitiligo is not life-threatening, it is a cause of concern and can affect your mindset. Treatments for vitiligo can restore colour to the affected area of the skin.

Types of Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a type of skin disorder that creates patches that appear by replacing the natural color of your skin. It’s neither infectious or contagious, as many skin experts believe.

These are some of the types of vitiligo.

Treatment Options Available For Vitiligo at Dr. Health Clinic

It’s safe to say most people view Vitiligo as something fatal. Many start to picture the worst because of this. Even so, it is worth noting that more research and treatment options are available today than ever. Therapy treatments like PUVA, narrow-band UVB therapy, skin grafting, and pigment transplantation can help with Vitiligo. Also, immunomodulators, topical applications, and oral medications that stimulate melanin are helpful. Dr. Health has developed a comprehensive blend of therapies to restore lost pigmentation. Also, improve the appearance of vitiligo-affected areas. The therapy is Re- Pigmentation therapy.

Pigment-Stimulating Topical Applications

Using topical applications to stimulate melanin production in damaged cells is a promising solution for Vitiligo. To treat this condition, you can use Topical applications with unprotected natural sunlight exposure. This can be beneficial for stimulating pigment production in these damaged cells.

Immune-Modulating Oral Medication

Vitiligo happens when the immune system misidentifies melanocytes as malicious and attacks them. Melanocytes are specialized cells that produce and contain melanin, which gives skin its color. Immune-modulating oral medication is a promising medical treatment that reduces inflammation and cell damage.

Sunlight and UV Therapies

Sunlight and UV therapies aim to stimulate melanin production in the affected areas. This helps them regain their original pigment. Exposure to sunlight helps activate the Vitamin D receptors. These are responsible for inducing pigment production in these body parts.

Combination therapy with UVA light and oral medication

Combination therapy with UVA light and oral medication is an effective treatment option for Vitiligo. Particularly those with large areas of skin affected by Vitiligo. UVA therapy involves exposing the affected area to ultraviolet light.

Antioxidant Therapy

Hydrogen peroxide is an oxidizing agent that can damage tissues if it accumulates too much in our bodies. This oxidative stress caused by an accumulation of hydrogen peroxide in the skin can lead to an autoimmune response from our bodies. This results in Vitiligo.

Hydrogen peroxide can cause the progressive destruction of melanocytes. These are the cells responsible for the pigment in the skin. Antioxidant therapy stimulates new melanocyte production to restore lost pigmentation in vitiligo-affected areas.

Depigmentation Therapy

Depigmentation therapy is an effective treatment option for people with widespread Vitiligo, not responsive to other treatments. This therapy works by lightening the skin in unaffected areas. This allows it to match the patches of discolored or depigmented skin created by Vitiligo. By lightening the unaffected areas and evening out skin tone, depigmentation therapy can help improve a person’s appearance. That, too, by camouflaging white patches.

Dietary Supplementation

Eating a healthy, balanced diet with essential nutrients can help treat Vitiligo. A dietary intervention involving nutrient supplementation is often beneficial for those with Vitiligo. It is important to understand which foods may aggravate this skin condition. Harmful foods should be avoided.

Lifestyle Modifications

Patients should understand that even if treatments are available for Vitiligo, lifestyle changes can significantly impact managing the condition. Stress is now known to be a significant contributing factor to the development of Vitiligo. Also, thyroid and blood sugar abnormalities can reduce the chances of preventing the spread of white patches from Vitiligo.

Avoiding potential triggers like trauma or friction can reduce the risk of developing new Vitiligo patches. Also, limiting exposure to infections, allergens, and worms can help people manage their condition over time. Sun protection is also essential.

When it comes to treating Vitiligo, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Different treatments work better for others. The right approach depends on an individual’s condition and preferences. One person may respond well to topical applications. Another patient may find tremendous success with light therapy or immunomodulators. Thus a mixture of therapies is often used to attain an optimal outcome. The combination approach’s purpose is to re-pigment the existing white lesions. After that, employ the most treatment methods possible to eliminate the latest white patches.

Cheshta Garg
As part of treatment I was supposed to show my white patches to sun light daily. But I am too lazy and would wake up late did not follow the sun exposure daily in the early part of the treatment. Dr pranjal would be scolding me each time for not showing to sun. she was checking my skin through some microscope and so she knew I was not applying medicine and showing to sun. she kept motivating me to be regular. Finally one day I decided to
become fully regular with medicine and treatment. And I am seeing good results because of that. So dr can give medicine but patient should also follow correctly.

We took our son with white patches. We were disappointed with our son’s skin condition. To top it she said it was not curable. With little choice, we started the treatment. My son developed some redness initially but the patches started to disappear slowly. She is good and handled everything patiently. I recommend her for white patches treatment in Hyderabad.

The normal skin contains a pigment called melanin, which imparts normal color to your skin. Vitiligo is a skin condition in which melanocytes or the cells that produce the melanin pigment are destroyed. As a result, your skin loses color, often in patches causing Vitiligo.

Despite advanced research, medicine is still trying to figure out the exact cause of white patches. There are numerous theories, the first theory is one of mistaken identity wherein the immune system mistakes the pigment cells for foreign bodies and destroys them. The 2 nd theory is where the cells self-destruct themselves. Whatever the cause, the course of the disease is certain and that is the destruction of pigment cells. Children of parents where one or both have white patches are at a fraction of a higher risk than the general population. Even with no family history for generations, any normal & fit person too stands a chance of suffering from it.

While a major symptom of vitiligo is the white patches on the skin, it can develop on any part of the body. It is mostly seen on:

  • Skin that is exposed to the sun like face, arms, legs, lips, hands and feet,
  • Skin that folds like elbows, armpits, groin or knees, and
  • On the skin around nostrils, navel and genital areas.

No, white Patches are caused due to several reasons. White patches which are present at birth are called Nevus Depigmentosus. They are stable and non-progressive but grow in proportion to the growth of the body. White patches caused by fungal infection are called Tinea Versicolor. Idiopathic Hypo-melanosis is a genetic disease with tiny white spots on arms and legs. These spots become more visible with sun exposure. White patches due to vitiligo or leucoderma are caused due to self-destruction of melanocytes. Chronic white patches due to Ptyriasis Alba are commonly seen in children on the face. If you have white patches, you should seek medical help and get a skin analysis done to diagnose the type of your white patches.

The risk factors of white patches are factors that may not directly cause the disease but contribute to the development of the disease in some way. Children of parents where 1 or both have white patches are at a fraction higher risk than the general population. About 30% of people with white patches have a family member with the disease. Other triggers are exposure to chemicals like phenol, emotional or physical stress, autoimmune disorder in which the body destroys its own melanocytes, autotoxic response wherein the melanocytes destroy themselves, skin injury, burns, inflammatory skin disorders and disorders such as anaemia, diabetes or a thyroid disease.

The most common chemical that can induce white patches on the skin is para-phenylene diamine (PPD) in hair dyes. As PPD can also be found in black socks and footwear, the white patches may also affect the feet. Chemically induced white patches are caused due to contact with para-tertiary butyl phenol (PTBP) found in adhesive bindi or in deodorants. The white patch initially presents at the site of application but can spread beyond the area as well. Avoidance of the chemical results in the recovery of skin color in most cases. However further extension of the white patches despite strict avoidance of these chemical may indicate an underlying genetic tendency to white patches.

A year to 6 months is the usual timeframe for it to spread; after a year, it often stops abruptly.

Yes, in some cases vitiligo may spontaneously recover.

For many people, the appearance of white patches spells doom. Though it differs from person to person, the psychological impact of having to live with vitiligo can be devastating, especially if the white patches are on the face. Though vitiligo is not medically dangerous or contagious, its appearance on your skin can be devastating. Almost everyone begins to imagine the worse. They go through a lot of depression and mental trauma, as the condition affects their physical appearance. Just like in many other skin diseases, loss of self- confidence and social alienation are common in vitiligo too. However, it is important to note that white patches usually respond effectively to re-pigmentation therapies. The advent of modern medicine, advanced diagnostic techniques, treatments and therapies are proving to be a boon and has the potential to change the lives of hundreds of patients. With the right skin care & lifestyle changes, the spread can also be controlled.

We live in modern times. But even today a lot of superstitious beliefs surround white patches attaching a lot of stigma to vitiligo. One of them being that it is a sign of “poorvajanama papa” or past life sins. Viruddhahar or incompatible foods are thought to be another cause, for e.g., milk and fish, milk and sour foods or milk and banana. Other myths include omitting every food that is white!! So, no milk, no rice, no curd, no butter, no salt. What is left to eat then, how absurd can diet get? It is time; we shun these myths and approach the treatment of this disease with modern medicine.

White patches can be caused due to several conditions. Therefore, if you notice white patches on your skin, it is best to consult a skin specialist. Your skin specialist will note down your medical history to find out if you are suffering from an immune system disorder or if vitiligo runs in your family and conduct a detailed skin analysis. Also, you may need to get some tests done to rule out medical problems like anaemia, diabetes or hypothyroidism that might have caused the white patches.

Yes, very effectively. In fact, there are more treatments available today than ever before. In addition to various oral medication, procedures like Melanocyte transplanting, skin grafting, tattooing, PUVA have been around for quite some time now. Most of the times a combination approach which provides both internal as well as external forms of therapies works best as it provides a more comprehensive coverage. While a complete cure for Vitiligo is yet to be found, most of times stable and limited cases can be treated quite successfully. Certain nutritional products like tyrosine, amino acids, vitamin B12, lotus stems are useful adjuncts to the main line of treatment. In most cases the treatment approach is focused upon re-pigmenting the exposed areas so that the patient can resume social activities comfortably.

  • If you are suffering from vitiligo do not be ashamed, depressed or even worried about appearing in public.
  • Be confident, as vitiligo is a benign, non-infectious condition of the skin.
  • Find a good dermatologist and learn everything there is to know about the condition.
  • Try getting in touch with groups who have vitiligo. Sharing your experiences will help you cope better.
  • Do not bottle up your emotions. Talk to your loved ones and seek their understanding and support.

Multiple factors trigger vitiligo, including stress, sunburn, chemical exposure, etc. Genetics and autoimmune factors can also contribute to the condition.

The objective of skin treatments for vitiligo is to create a uniform skin tone.

Vitiligo can affect the hair as well. If you have vitiligo on the part of the body that has hair, the hair can also be affected.

Occasionally, vitiligo may return even after treatment.

The occurrence and spread of vitiligo can be erratic. It does not follow any known pattern. Therefore, it is difficult to predict the spread of vitiligo. For some people the spread may occur in a matter of weeks, and for others it may stabilize and not grow for years.
