Vitiligo Treatment

Vitiligo is a skin disorder in which the pigment producing cells in the skin, melanocytes, are destroyed, due to which white or depigmentated skin patches surface on the skin of the patient on different parts of the body. Although the disease is not contagious or life threatening but does tend to have major effect on the patient’s mental and emotional state, hence they seek for working Vitiligo Treatment. Sometimes these colorless skin patches are also discovered on the mucous membranes that are the tissues that are located inside the nose, mouth and the eyeball’s inner layer. Since it is also known to affect the scalp of the head, patches of white hair may also emerge on the Vitiligo damaged skin.

Almost half to one percent of the people around the world suffer from Vitiligo, which is approximately equal to a rough estimate of 65 million people, and most of them seek for a permanent Vitiligo treatment as well. And statistical data suggests that around one to two million people in United States are suffering from this disease.
Although there is not an exact age on which a person is more likely to suffer from the disease, but half of the people who are affected by it, develop the disease before they turn 20. While most of those patients develop the disorder before they turn 40 years of age. Vitiligo does not effects the people from some specific gender or race, in fact anyone from any kind of racial background can develop the disease at any age, however those with the darker skin tones are more likely to develop it.

It is believed that Vitiligo is triggered by the destruction of melanocytes, so most of the modern day vitiligo treatment are directed towards them. On which ever part of the body, Melanocytes are destroyed, white colorless patch emerges. Sometimes this is caused by the autoimmunity of the patient. Autoimmunity is a condition when a person’s autoimmune system starts working against its own organs and tissues, and hence it destroys pigment producing skin cells. This is the reason why people with some specific autoimmune diseases are more likely to suffer from Vitiligo. Amongst these autoimmune diseases are: Pernicious Anemia which is resulted by the failure of the body to absorb Vit. B12 and so resulting low red blood cell count; Hyperthyroidism, in which thyroid gland overacts; Alopecia Areata or Baldness; and Adrenocortical insufficiency, in which a hormone called corticosteroid is not being produced enough. As of the moment, no exact relation between Vitiligo and these autoimmune diseases have been discovered, but still many cite Vitiligo as an autoimmune disease.

It is also not necessary that Vitiligo may be caused by some specific incident during the lifetime of the patient because sometimes it may be just be hereditary, and so it can run in the family. So those children who have parents who suffered from this disorder are more prone to getting the disease as compared to those who don’t have it running in their family. Statistical data indicates that, out of all the people who suffer from this disease, 30% are those have a family member who had this disorder. But still it is not necessary that if a parent has it, the child will have it as well because many patients don’t have any history of Vitiligo running in their family.
