Have you recently observed the development natural white marks on the skin in a very unnatural way? If the answer is yes, you need to consult skinaa skin specialist as soon as possible. Nothing to fear, but losing color of the skin refers to the state of skin disorder, termed as Vitiligo.

About

Vitiligo concerns a disease in which the growing patches of the skin tends to lose color. The skin disorder can happen to people of any age, gender or community. It sustains for a longer period of time.

Commonly it has been observed that the area on the body and the percentage of area affected differs from person to person. Specifically there is no cure for this disease and the condition remains the same throughout life. Although the Vitiligo is not contagious yet it is a concern to those who suffer from it. Depending on the type and the speed with which the disease spreads, it has been categorized in three different ways:

  • When the discolored patched progresses in the corresponding parts of the body, it is called as Generalized Vitiligo.
  • In case, the discolored patches appear in only one side or some part of your body, then it will be called as Segmental Vitiligo. Under this only one side or part of the body is covered. The segmental vitiligo occurs at the younger age, progress for some time and then stops.
  • When only one or a few parts of the body are affected then it is the Localized Vitiligo.

Symptoms

One basic symptom of Vitiligo is the appearance of white spots that too in patches. You may observe the first spot in the area that is most exposed to the Sun. There is no particular size or shape of these white patches and can appear in varied shape/size.

The white spots do not cause any irritation or burning to the patients. It is just that the area of skin affected with Vitiligo gets more sensitive towards the Sunlight. All the patches do not grow altogether as it might take weeks or months for a patch to spread in the affected area.

The patches under Vitiligo seem visible if the patient has a dark colored skin. Other than the skin, the other symptoms of vitiligo may include premature whitening or graying of the hair on your scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, or beard. The patient who suffers with Vitiligo may also witness loss of color in the tissues that line inside the mouth and nose. At times it has been observed that there is the loss of or change in the color of the inner layer of the eyeball.

Causes

Vitiligo happens when the skin loses its color. Humans have different color of skin due to the presence of melanin. Now when the skin loses melanin the white patches develop. It happens due to the breakdown of the pigment forming cells called melanocytes. One reason that can be established for the loss of colors is the weakening autoimmune condition.

Treatment

The treatment under Vitiligo is to restore the skin color despite knowing the fact that the results are unpredictable.
