Vitiligo Homeopathy Treatment
Vitiligo appears as white colored patches(macules). Leucoderma is also wrongly interpreted as Vitiligo. Leucoderma also has white patches on the skin. But leucoderma is more of a symptom from underlying disease mechanism whereas, Vitiligo is a full-fledged progressive disease.
Vitiligo is commonly referred to as “white patches”. In Hindi, it is called “Safed daag” and in Telugu “Bolli”.
Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease that results in the destruction of melanocytes (melanocytes are melanin- secreting cells that give color to the skin).
Vitiligo patches are seen on the trunk of the body, around the mouth, axillary regions, inside of elbows and back-side of knees, lips, and external genitalia.
Causes of Vitiligo:
The reason for the appearance of white patches on the skin due to vitiligo is still a mystery. But the risk of getting vitiligo is high if a person has genetic/family history and if a person is already suffering from some autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Alopecia Areata, etc. The appearance of vitiligo can also be due to some triggering factors such as stress, certain chemical irritants, and any skin damage.
If a varicocele causes symptoms, it can be treated surgically. The purpose of surgery is to seal the affected vein and redirect the blood flow into other healthy veins. Surgical options include Open surgery, Laparoscopic surgery, and Percutaneous embolization. Varicocele repair poses few risks like buildup of fluid around the testicles, infection, and damage to an artery.

- Vitiligo patches are seen on the trunk of the body, around the mouth, axillary regions, inside of elbows and back-side of knees, lips, and external genitalia.

Why should choose for Homeopathy Treatment?
Vitiligo patches are due to the destruction of cells meant for giving color to the skin. It is a very deep disease with auto-immunity involved. In such cases, creams or topical ointments will not give permanent treatment for vitiligo. Homeopathy medicines have a deep action feature that acts on the immune system of the vitiligo patients to prevent the stoppage of melanocyte destruction and then stabilize the disturbed cell equilibrium so that skin pigmentation occurs normally and permanently.
