Vitiligo (Leucoderma)

Vitiligo (vit-ill-EYE-go) also known as Leucoderma is a skin disease in which patches of white-colored appear on areas of one's body as the tissues which produce pigments, are destroyed. These are non other than melanocytes (ma-LAN-o-sites). Vitiligo can also impact the mucous membranes (such as the cells within the mouth place and nose) and the eye.

What causes vitiligo?

The cause is not known yet and it is an auto-immune disease. When your immune system incorrectly strikes some part of your own body, the melanocytes in the skin are destroyed by the immune system and hence cause vitiligo. Genetic cause may also be the reason for this disease.

Some researchers think that the melanocytes eliminate themselves. Many people consider sunburn or emotional distresses which can also the main cause of vitiligo. But these cases have not been confirmed as the reason of vitiligo.

Causes of vitiligo

Shockingly, the origin of vitiligo is yet to be exactly established, but most of the research so far factors to the follow:

  • An auto-immune problem - the individual's immune system becomes overactive and damages the melanocytes2

  • A stressful event

  • Genetic oxidative pressure imbalance

  • Harm to the skin due to a critical sun burn or cut

  • Exposure to some chemicals

  • A sensory cause

  • Heredity - family link

  • A viral cause

Vitiligo is not transmittable; in other words, it is not contagious, people cannot catch it from each other

Types of vitiligo

Scientists separate vitiligo into two types: non-segmental, and segmental vitiligo

Non-segmental vitiligo

  • Skin Disease

Non-segmental vitiligo is the most common type of vitiligo and occurs in up to 90% of people who have the disorder.

In non-segmental vitiligo, the patches often seen equally on both sides of one's body, with some measure of symmetry. The shaped patches most commonly seen on skin that is exposed to the sun, like hands, face and the neck parts but can also seen in other places of body

  • Backs of the hands

  • Arms.

  • Eyes

  • Knees

  • Elbows

  • Feet

  • Mouth

Non-segmental vitiligo is further broken down into sub-categories:

  • Generalized vitiligo: no specific area or size of patches, this is the most common type

  • Acrofacial vitiligo: mostly on the fingers or toes

  • Mucosal vitiligo: depigmentation generally appears around the mucous membranes and lips

  • Universal vitiligo: depigmentation covers most of the body, this is very rare

  • Focal vitiligo: one, or a few, scattered white patches in a discrete area. Most often occurs in young children

Segmental vitiligo

  • This types of disease spreads faster but is measured as more constant and stable than non-segmental. It is less frequent and only about 10% of individuals affects with vitiligo.

  • In early age groups, Segmental vitiligo is more noticeable and affecting about 30% of kids.

  • It is more constant, less irregular and responds well to topical treatments.

The main symptom of vitiligo is pigment loss of your skin. The light/white lines usually appear before the age of 20 and can differ in size and variety. This situation is not associated with physical discomfort or pain. Symptoms may appear as:

  • Discolored skin on the experience, hands, hands, or feet (most common).

  • Light colored cells along the within mouth place and nose.

  • Discolored skin on other areas of one's body (armpits, genital area, rectum, etc.)

  • Loss of color in the hair (head, eyebrows, eyelashes, and facial hair).

  • Skin Disease

Skin disease and Rambaan homeopathy

In homeopathy, when we move towards dealing with skin diseases, we analyse skin disease completely; and try to recognize its inner cause, at the quality of immunology, hormones, genetics, metabolic, etc. and plan the treatment in such as way that the issue is addressed at the root stage, dealing with the related cause. By dealing with the issue such as urticaria, skin psoriasis, vitiligo or lichen planus, we cure the issue at a further stage so that the issue does not recur for a long period, for many months or years.

While dealing with your skin diseases at such a further stage using homeopathy, the homeopathic medicines are administered orally. Homeopathy does not believe in dealing with skin disease by using creams or cream. Homeopathy believes that if you cure skin disease by using external creams or lotions, you are actually going to 'hide' or 'mask' the disease and not 'cure' it.

Homoeopathy has insightful and deep understanding towards dealing with skin diseases. Homeopathy offers scientific approach to skin disease treatment. The homeopathic approach in choosing the medicine is precisely called 'The Constitutional Approach', whereby a lot of questions are asked to the patient and founded on the analysis and evaluation of various symptoms, a treatment procedure is selected for the patient. Homeopathic treatment methods are 'individual particular and not disease particular.
