Vitiligo or White patches is medically referred to as Leucoderma. It is a disease that causes loss of skin colour resulting in white patches. It can affect the skin on any part of the human body. It occurs when the melanin-forming cells called melanocytes which produce melanin die or stop functioning. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious, but it is stressful and makes one feel bad about oneself.

The main sign of vitiligo is the loss of skin pigment which produces light or white patches on the skin. The discoloration is first visible on sun-exposed areas like the hands, feet, arms, face, and lips. It can also be coupled with premature greying of hair below the age of mid-thirties, colour loss of retina, and inner lining of the mouth.

Vitiligo Treatment in Homeopathy

Vitiligo has no cure, but homeopathic treatment help to stop or slow the process of colour loss and brings back some colour to the skin. The failure of melanocytes can be attributed to a disorder in which immune system attacks and destroys them. It can also be triggered by sunburn, stress, or exposure to industrial chemicals. People with vitiligo are at risk of Social or psychological distress, loss of hearing, sunburn, and skin cancer, inflammation of the iris, and dry skin.

The homeopathic treatment enhances the natural production of pigments and Vitiligo is considered as a manifestation of an inner disturbed state of the body. The patient is analyzed on mental, physical, and familial attributes.
