Vitiligo natural treatment is the best, as it produces the best results. Vitiligo creates white spots and streaks on the skin, due to the loss of melanocytes, or pigment cells on the skin. No more pigment can be manufactured on those sites, once the cells are destroyed.
Approximately one percent of the population is affected by Vitiligo, and the disease affects dark skinned people more often than light skinned people. Common areas of affliction are the backs of the hands, the arms, exposed areas of the skin, the fingers, central face, sites of injury and the hair.
The disease is probably an autoimmune issue and it can seem to afflict a person suddenly, and out of nowhere. Thirty percent of the people who have this disease have had other family members suffer from this ailment, so there is most likely a genetic connection. It is a condition which can come on rapidly.
Some of the natural remedies that have proven to be effective over the years for vitiligo natural treatment include mega doses of vitamin C, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin B5, and evening primrose oil.
Some home remedies include Alum, Natrum carbonicum Sepia, Silich, Sulfur and Phosphorus. A qualified Naturopath can prescribe the proper combinations of these various ingredients, when using Vitiligo natural treatment.
Psoralen Photochemotherapy is a more effective cure than corticosteroids. It is helpful to repigment the white patches. It could be taken as an oral or topical cream. This drug has a chemical that can react with the ultraviolet rays of the sun, hence people taking this treatment should avoid exposing the affected areas to the sun.
Depigmentation is another vitiligo treatment that is effective. The rest of the skin will be faded in order to match the affected areas. This treatment method is used for people who have Vitiligo on more than 50% of their body.
More home remedies include a sunscreen when out in the sun, because the white skin has literally no protection. A sunblock that contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide is the preferable protection from the sun that works well.
When you are out in the sun and you have Vitiligo, it is important to cover up even more carefully, because you can burn fairly quickly on uncovered parts of your body that have Vitiligo, because there is no protective layer to protect the skin in the affected areas.
It is always a good idea to consult your health professional when considering potential treatments.
