Vitiligo FAQ's- Frequently Asked Questions about Vitiligo & Leucoderma
Q. What is Vitiligo/Leucoderma/White patches?
A. VITILIGO & LEUCODERMA are two different terms used for the same skin disease. But, there exists causative difference between these two. Literally ‘Leucoderma’ means ‘white skin’. Terming it a disease is not appropriate because it does not cause any organic default and it starts without any symptom. So, basically it is a ‘skin disorder’. Generally it starts from a small spot, which gradually develops into patch. Primarily the patch may be pale but it develops whiter as the time passes and finally it appears white due to complete loss of melanin pigment (which provides normal skin colour). The patch would be of any shape or size. So it can also be termed as a ‘pigmentation disorder’.
Actually, Leucoderma/Vitiligo has got more social significance as compared to medical because of its prominence over a person’s skin, which differentiates him/her from others.
Q. What causes Vitiligo?
A. Excessive mental worry, presence of parasites in alimentary canal and mostly improper hygiene too may also be considered to be one of the causes according to Ayurveda. An example of this is ‘virudh ahar sevan’ (as fish & milk together) forms toxic substances which gradually destroys body’s own immunity system. While referring about Leucoderma, it generally appears due to some external accidental causes, which may be a burn, a cut or an ulcer. These external factors basically damage the cells beneath skin, which produce ‘melanin’ pigment. It results to diminished skin colour patches, which later converts white and prominent, forming white patches.
Exact cause of Vitiligo remains unknown. However, there are different theories suggesting autoimmune syndrome (a condition whereby the immune system of body destroys body’s own tissues & cells), impaired hepatic function as jaundice, gastric disorder, typhoid fever etc.
Q. Whether the Vitiligo can be inherited?
A. Heredity is almost 20-30% considered to be a causative factor. If parents have history, then there are more chances of one developing ‘Vitiligo’. Moreover, it is not a rule. At the same time, numerous cases of Vitiligo do not have a relevant family history of Vitiligo.
Q. Is Vitiligo infectious or contagious?
A. It is neither infectious nor contagious, it is only a cosmetic problem & it tarnishes the beauty of the human body.
Q. Will the De-pigmented Patches Spread?
A. There is no way to predict if Vitiligo will spread. In some cases these patches remain stagnant through whole life. But in most cases these spread spontaneously and merge to each other covering most of the skin area. Alternately, in many cases only one patch enlarge spontaneously covering a larger skin area.
Q. How Is Vitiligo/Leucoderma/White patches Diagnosed?
A. If a doctor suspects that a person has Vitiligo, he or she usually begins by asking the person about his or her medical history. Important factors in a person's medical history are a family history of Vitiligo; a rash, sunburn, or other skin trauma at the site of Vitiligo 2 to 3 months before de-pigmentation started; stress or physical illness; and premature (before age 40) graying of the hair. In addition, the doctor will need to know whether the patient or anyone in the patient's family has had any autoimmune diseases and whether the patient is very sensitive to the sun. The doctor will then examine the patient to rule out other medical problems.
Q. What Treatment Options Are Available?
A. The goal of treating Vitiligo is to restore the function of the skin and to improve the patient's appearance. Therapy for Vitiligo takes a long time--it usually must be continued for 6 to 18 months. The choice of therapy depends on the number of white patches and how widespread they are and on the patient's preference for treatment. Each patient responds differently to therapy. However, our ancient Ayurvedic treatment with a modern and scientific research is proven to be very helpful in treating Vitiligo patients.
Q. How will Ayurhealthline help in treating Vitiligo?
A. Ayurhealthline concentrates its prime focus on treatment of White patches/Leucodema/Vitiligo patients through its unique herbal formulations. Especially at Ayurhealthline each and every patient is treated according to the most ancient system of medicine, Ayurveda. In Ayurhealthline we treat the patient not only the disease. The patient is basically given different herbal combinations, which acts on the root cause of the disease so that to act faster with no relapse (repeat) of the disease. This unique Ayurvedic theory makes the difference. While treatment, a patient’s immunity power is also developed to such extent so that his body can counteract to any disease causing agents such as Bacteria, Viruses, and Parasites etc.
For Leucoderma / Vitiligo treatment Ayurhealthline has combination of oral and applicable research based herbal medicines.
Q. What is the Mechanism of Action & Result of the Herbal Formulations?
A. After few weeks of treatment with the herbal medicines of Ayurhealthline, squeezing of white patches starts. In some cases squeezing/compression/shrinking of the patches starts from the periphery of a patch. Visible change in skin colour appears as the area converts darker along the periphery of patches and the darker skin area formed by medicines gradually covers all the white/pale skin area resulting in closing of a patch, which later mixes up with normal skin.
While in some cases small darker spots appear on the mid of white patches. Gradually, these darker spots spread and cover the entire area of a white patch converting the patch area into normal skin.
In some cases the patch area converts pink/pale in colour in the beginning which later mixes with normal skin colour by getting darker.
These are the three types of healing patterns found by the use of our herbal medicines. In some Vitiligo cases all the three patterns of healing took place resulting into faster recovery. Well, Positive thinking of a patient also helps to heal faster. This every patient should follow while treatment for his/her faster recovery.
