Vitiligo is a condition of macular depigmentation. It is also called leukoderma. This occurs when melanocytes (cells that produce color pigments) disappear from certain body portions. This disorder begins with formation of small spots that enlarge over a period of time. External appearance is very much affected. The main cause of vitiligo is attributed to hereditary reasons whereas other reasons are yet to be understood. About 30% of vitiligo patients have inheritance as their main cause.
One can very much rely on Homoeopathy for its treatment. The reason is because of the fact that homoeopathy helps in the natural pigment formation. Even though several medicines are available, other procedures also results in improvement. Medications include Baryta Mur, Baryta Carb, Arsenic Sulph Falvus, and Arsenic Album etc. Other procedures include use of sun safety devices and usage of camouflage creams.
