Ayurvedic Treatment For Vitiligo At Central India

  • About Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin loses melanin, Vitiligo is a condition in which white patches develop on the skin. Any location on the body can be affected, and most people with vitiligo have white patches in many areas.

 

 


Causes Of Vitiligo


The skin doesn’t have its characteristic color because it has lost its melanin. For some reason, the pigment-forming cells known as melanocytes have been destroyed.

We don’t know exactly why this happens. It might be an autoimmune condition, where your body’s defenses turn on your own cells instead of attacking invading germs.

Although vitiligo affects all races equally, it’s more noticeable in dark-skinned people.


Symptoms Of Vitiligo


You’ll often lose pigment quickly on several areas of your skin. After the white patches appear, they may stay the same for a while, but later on, they might get bigger. You may have cycles of pigment loss and stability.

Vitiligo commonly affects body folds (such as armpits), places that have been injured in the past, and areas exposed to the sun, around moles, or around body openings. It can also affect eyelids and hair.

It’s rare for the pigment to return once the white patches have developed.
