Homeopathic Remedies for Vitiligo

Vitiligo is also known as leucoderma and is a relatively common skin disorder where white spots or patches appear on the skin. The most widely accepted view regarding vitiligo is that the depigmentation occurs because vitiligo is an autoimmune disease in which a person's immune system reacts against the body's own organs or tissues.  People's bodies produce proteins called cytokines. In vitiligo, these alter the pigment-producing cells and cause these cells to die.  Only the color of the skin is affected by vitiligo, but texture and other skin qualities remain normal. The hair may also turn white that grows in areas affected by vitiligo.

Another theory is that melanocytes destroy themselves. This ccurs when the melanocytes, cells responsible for skin pigmentation, die or are unable to function. The precise cause of vitiligo is complex and not fully understood. There is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of auto-immune, genetic, and environmental factors. Some people have reported that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress triggered vitiligo.
