Vitiligo is caused by immunological, hormonal and genetic factors.

Dr Shah’s homeopathy treatment addresses the totality and treats Vitiligo internally

External treatment of Vitiligo with Corticosteroid or any immunosuppressive medicine is likely to increase it eventually

We have observed this in hundreds of cases at Life Force

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 hands are more conscious as it draws the attention of people, especially in social and professional interaction. Some people having vitiligo on hands find it a bit uncomfortable shaking hands. Those involved in public appearance including teachers and speakers might feel awkward while talking in public especially holding a microphone in hand.

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 palms.

Vitiligo on finger-tips:

Vitiligo on the fingertips falls into the category of what is called as 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 finger-tips, the chances of recovery are less or none.

Vitiligo on the back of the palm is not that difficult 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.

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.
