Vitiligo on Hands (Fingers, Finger Tips, Palms)

Vitligo Spots on Finger Tips Vitiligo on hands (including the back of palms, palms, fingers, and finger-tips)

Vitiligo can appear on any part of the body where there is skin. The patients having vitiligo on their hands are more conscious as it draws the attention of people, especially in social and professional interaction. Some people having vitiligo on their hands find it a bit uncomfortable shaking hands. Those involved in public appearances including teachers and speakers might feel awkward while talking in public especially holding a microphone in hand.

One may be scattered, segmental patches of vitiligo on hands or may have symmetrical on both the hands, especially affecting the fingertips. Such individuals also tend to have a similar appearance of vitiligo on their feet over time. 

Is vitiligo on hands different than elsewhere on the body?

Vitiligo on Palms

Well, vitiligo anywhere on the body results from the loss of melanin pigments on the skin. It is the same phenomenon if one has vitiligo on the palms.

Vitiligo on finger-tips:

Vitiligo on the fingertips falls into the category of what is called Muco-cutaneous junctions, the area where skin meets with mucous membranes.

Any difference in the chances of recovery?

Vitiligo on Fingers and Back of Palms

Yes, when it comes to the treatment of vitiligo which affects the fingertips, the chances of recovery are less or none.

Vitiligo on the back of the palm is not impossible to treat, but a bit more difficult than the spots on some softer parts like the abdomen. Vitiligo on the fingers (not on the tips) can see improvement with certain treatments. Success in the treatment of such spots varies based on many internal and external factors. 

 

Vitiligo on Fingers & Between FingersVitiligo on palms can improve to some extent; may not recover completely in all cases. Of course, there are variations in the results depending on individual cases.
