Dr Shah's video on Vitiligo
Vitiligo is a skin disease where skin loses its color or pigment, leading to white patches on skin. Vitiligo is not a serious disease. About 1.5% of world population including 8% of Indians has vitiligo. It can affect children and adults.Vitiligo occurs due to one or both of the following processes in the body:
The factors which lead to above two processes are not fully understood, but they are a mix of genetic, auto-immune, hormonal, allergic and stress related, besides some chemicals destroying skin pigment directly. Usually, there are multiple factors play combined roles to develop vitiligo.
Vitiligo presents with spots on skin which slowly fade color, turning finally milky white. There may be a single patch or multiple. The spots may appear and may not progress for months or years; or may spread rapidly, depending on underlying causative factors. The spread of vitiligo spots cannot be predicted. Some people may has vitiligo spots on one side of the body, while others may have it on both sides of body, what is called as bilaterally symmetrical; that is, both elbows, both knees, etc.
Some patients with vitiligo may have finger-tips, lips, genitals, corners of mouth involved; what is called as muco-cutaneuous junctions, which are more difficult to treat or may be incurable. Some may have small spots, some may have very large patches. Some may have grey hair on the vitiligo spots. The spread and distribution of vitiligo is not predictable.
