Here are Cause, Symptoms and Treatments of Vitiligo

Hello, I am Dr. Shailnder Dhawan from Kayakalp from Faridabad, today we will be discussing about Vitiligo which is Leucoderma. This is a very important issue that the society is facing these days and I have chalked down a few points that we will be discussing today.

The first most important point is what is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease and a long term skin condition. It is characterized by patches on the skin that lose pigment, like the way toxins arise from blood, they go in the body and attack the skin and this leads to the formation of white patches. This is also known as a genetic disorder which is born out of stressful conditions, it is viewed as a taboo in society.

There are many causes for Vitiligo, according to modern theory it is a genetic disease and cab trigger due to a stressful condition but in Ayurveda we have got many new replies to the question as to what can trigger Vitiligo. According to Ayurveda, certain food items like milk if taken along with any pickle, lemon or radish can trigger Vitiligo. The other point I will be making is what are the treatment options? This is very important, as one you get a disease, you should know how to cure it. In Allopathy we have got external applications for the pigments. In Homeopathy, healing is a slow process since the patches might increase or decrease. In Ayurveda we have got a very good reply to this disease, the medicines given to the patient in this treatment acts directly on the toxins in the blood that are responsible for the white patches, which further neutralizes the toxins and the external application helps to generate the pigment, hence within 3 months we get very good results to this disease, especially for those with black hair.

The combination of Allopathy and Ayurveda also gives very good results. Another point is, that what are the expected results, if the hair follicles are black then within three months, 25%-30% recovery is possible and if the patient is having white hair, the recovery period is a little bit slow. Finger tips and lips are difficult areas to be treated, in case of a marriageable case, we can have a surgical procedure along with some other options. Vitiligo is not only a skin disease, it affects other organs also like Thyroid amongst others. So, in most of the case, almost 30% patients, we are observing that most patients are having a thyroid involvement in this disease. So we guide our patients to have a liver function test along with thyroid profile. Genetic is huge issue in patients, so most patients ask if this disease will be carried forward to their children. The answer to this is , that in our medical practice we have observed that 2-3% of the patients that have Vitiligo who have a genetic history are also having genetic problems.

So if you want then you can contact me via Lybrate, you can discuss things, you can send photographs to me via Whatsapp or you can visit the clinic. Thank you

Vitiligo: Causes, Symptoms and Its Ayurvedic Treatments

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Vitiligo: Causes, Symptoms and Its Ayurvedic Treatments

Vitiligo is a skin disorder where white patches of depigmentation develop on the skin and keep enlarging. This disorder is long-term and continuous in nature. The patches appear due to the death of melanocytes within the skin. Melanocytes are skin pigment producing cells, which produce melanin. Vitiligo can affect the skin of several areas, including the eyes, hair and the portion inside the mouth.

Causes-

The causes of this disease are as follows:

  1. Autoimmune disorders in which the immune system of a patient becomes over reactive, and the melanocytes are destroyed.
  2. This disease may also occur due to genetic oxidative stress imbalance.
  3. Stressful events may also lead to vitiligo.
  4. Harm or damage to the skin from sunburns or cuts also leads to vitiligo.
  5. Exposure of the skin to several harmful chemicals may be a cause.
  6. Neural disorders are also responsible for vitiligo.
  7. Vitiligo may also happen from viral causes or may be hereditary and passed on from family members.

Symptoms-

Vitiligo has only one major symptom. White, flat spots and patches develop on the surface of the skin. The earliest of these white patches appear on the parts of the body which are exposed to the sun continuously.

It starts off as a simple spot in the beginning and gradually, the spot starts getting pale and finally turns white. The patches have irregular shapes, and in some cases the edges get inflamed and are red in color. Itchiness is experienced in the affected areas. Symmetrical patches signify slow development of vitiligo.

The two major types of vitiligo are:

  1. Non segmental vitiligo, which affects the back of the hand, the arms, knees, elbows, feet, mouth.
  2. Segmental vitiligo, which is more stable than non segmental vitiligo but spreads faster. It usually affects areas of the skin, which are attached to nerves.

Ayurvedic View

According to Ayurveda, Leucoderma is caused due to the aggravation of Pitta Dosha. Pitta is an Ayurvedic humor which symbolizes heat or fire, and is manifested in the skin. Aggravated Pitta leads to accumulation of ama (toxins) in deep layers of the skin, leading to the condition of Leucoderma.

Pitta is of five types; one of them is Bhrajak Pitta that gives coloration to skin. In the case of Leucoderma, Bhrajak Pitta is in an imbalanced state, and therefore, the skin starts losing its color and white patches appear. Along with Pitta Dosha, deeper body tissues like Rasa Dhatu (nutrient plasma), Rakta (blood), Mansa (muscles), Lasika (lymph) are also involved in the disease.

Treatment consists of pacifying imbalanced body energies, cleansing the blood and administrating herbs that restore skin color. Poor digestion is the root cause of this disease, as it causes the build-up of toxins in the tissues. An essential part of treatment, therefore, is restoring digestion. The patient will also be advised on the correct diet and lifestyle adjustments to prevent recurrence of the disorder.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

  • Increase consumption of vegetables that are bitter in taste, like drumsticks and bitter gourd.
  • Stay away from difficult to digest foods, sour taste, excessive salt, curd, fish, jaggery and sesame seeds.
  • Avoid consumption of opposite foods, such as fish and milk together.
  • Have sound and adequate sleep daily.
  • Do not over-expose yourself to excessive cold or heat conditions.

I am suffering from 2 year with psoriasis in my hand so please tell what should i do?
Hello, As you mentioned you are suffering from psoriasis for past. Suggesting any medicines or local application to you will not be a good idea, as I will require a complete case taking so that the root of cause is eliminated to prevent relapse. Psoriasis is the chronic, non infectious, skin disorder having silvery white scales. A normal skin cell matures in 28-30 days but psoriatic skin takes 3 to 6 days, It can strike at any age but often in 15-35 years of age. Psoriasis most commonly appears in scalp, knee, elbow, hands and feet. It rarely effect the face, Main disease causing factors are– Genetic history of disease, stress, anxiety and mental trauma, Physical injury, Digestive upset infection, drug allergies and wrong food combinations. The treatment should be continued till body is completely clear of patches and body clear of toxins. The relapses rate is low, if the attack is completely controlled. There should be no undue stress which affects either body or mind. Frequent sunbathes before the onset of winters are helpful .High protein diet in winter is advised. Psoriasis is such a detail subject that it can not be explained in few lines. There are many queries about differential diagnosis ,causes ,triggers, is it genetic, diet, curable etc.

Diet For Vitiligo!

Diet For Vitiligo!

Vitiligo is a disease that causes the loss of skin shading and colour in patches. The degree and rate of colour loss from vitiligo cannot be determined. It can influence any part of the skin on your body. It might also influence one’s hair, inside of the mouth and even the eyes.

Ordinarily, the shade of one’s hair, skin and eyes is measured by melanin. Vitiligo happens when the cells that create melanin quit working or die. Vitiligo influences individuals of all skin types; however, it might be more common in individuals with a darker skin. The condition is not contagious or life threatening.

Numerous medicines may be used to restore the skin shading or level out the skin tone. A few medicines might have some serious side effects on some people. So your specialist may propose that you first try to improve your skin by applying self-tanning products or make-up. Here is the diet for Vitiligo Treatment:

It has been confirmed through research that a large number of vitiligo cases are a result of deficiency of folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin 312, zinc, and copper. Vitiligo can, therefore, also be treated through some easy alterations in your diet. Try to include celery in your diet. Celery is filled with psoralen, which increases the skin’s ability of reacting naturally to sunlight.

Enrich your diet with antioxidants rich foods like:

  • beans
  • berries
  • apples
  • carrots
  • grapes
  • potatoes
  • spinach

Fill your diet with foods carrying rich content of folic acid. These foods include:

  • green leafy vegetables
  • broccoli
  • asparagus
  • peas
  • beans
  • nuts and seeds
  • pumpkin
  • cauliflower
  • avocado
  • citrus fruits (Vitamin C)
  • celery
  • carrots
  • beets
  • Avoid taking dairy products, fat foods, red meat, smoking and alcohol. Sun exposure, instead of artificial UV Rays, is more helpful in gaining new pigmentation for vitiligo patients.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
