What is Vitiligo?
It is a skin related disease also known as "leucoderma", which means white skin. Vitiligo is a common disorder of depigmentation, which occurs due to retarded production of melanin in the skin. It appears as white patches. If left untreated, white patches start expanding and becoming prominent and new patches start developing. Gradually almost whole skin becomes white but there is no formation of scales over them.
Vitiligo is found all over the world, in all countries and all races. It may occur in either sex at any age but mostly it starts before 30 years age. Within this age group, occurrence of vitiligo is more common in childhood and teen age.
Causes of Vitiligo
There are various views about cause of vitiligo but exact cause is not yet known. It is commonly understood as local disorder of the skin resulting from pigmentary changes. Our experience with cured cases shows that it is neurogenic in origin, triggered by certain imbalances of heat and moisture in the body and aggravated by certain kinds of food items. Ultraviolet rays are only an aggravating factor, not the cause of vitiligo. One opinion is that vitiligo is caused by taking milk immediately after a particular type of fish but no body knows which type of fish is that. This is only a myth not the true cause of vitiligo.
