the most incurable skin disease, and its treatment is not impossible

Vitiligo is considered a difficult skin disease that requires a long time of treatment, and requires a flexible treatment plan that is compatible with each individual patient. Treating vitiligo is possible today and is no longer impossible as it was in previous days!

What is vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a skin disease in which white spots appear, due to an immune defect that causes a deficiency or reduction in the secretion of melanin, which is the pigment responsible for skin color. Vitiligo often appears before the age of thirty and spreads throughout the body, and the most common areas where vitiligo spots can appear are: “the hands, the face.” It can also spread to the hair and inside the mouth.

It is very important to know that vitiligo is an immune disease that is not transmitted by contact or contagious! It can be treated by stimulating the production of melanin pigment in the skin.

Causes of vitiligo:

The main reason for the presence of white and brown spots on the skin is the lack of melanin pigment due to the immune system, which is responsible for the color of the skin, and its deficiency or cessation of its secretion is linked to several factors, which are:

– Genetics: If there are previous cases in the family

– Autoimmune disorders

– Exposure to chemicals

-Sunburn

– Skin cancer that causes the death of melanocytes.

What are the symptoms that characterize “vitiligo”?

The main sign of vitiligo is the loss of the skin’s natural color. This loss is characterized by the spread of light spots in abundance on exposed areas of the body, such as the face, hands, tongue, and lips. It can also appear in the genital areas and all over the body.

The most prominent symptoms of vitiligo are:

– Change in the color of eyelashes, hair, eyebrows or beard.

– Difference in color of the mucous membranes in the mouth and nose

– The blood vessels under the skin turn pink

– A clear difference in the color of the retina
