Parents have to understand that some varieties of Vitiligo are treatable; some are controllable while some are not treatable.

Your doctor must have expertise to define the scope of treatment.

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: Controllable or curable? Explanation by Dr. Rajesh Shah

Vitiligo is not a serious disease, as Dr Rajesh Shah, MD, tells every patient of Vitiligo. Vitiligo is a disease where the skin loses some pigments due to the complex mechanism in the body, which is governed by immunological, hormonal and genetic factors. It could be triggered by the use of chemicals, certain food and stress. It needs to be managed strategically by doctors who understand this disease.

The major concern about Vitiligo is due to its cosmetic and hence social aspects. Though the disease does not produce any major objective suffering such as pain, discomfort or internal damage to any organ, the patients, and the parents are disturbed due to the patchy look of it; especially those having brown or dark skin.

At Life Force, Dr Shah’s team has treated patients with Vitiligo in all kinds of skin types. Talking in terms of genetic types, we have treated Vitiligo among practically all types in the worlds such as Americans, British, Australians, Africans, Indians, Japanese, Chinese, Brazilians, Irish, Koreans, Egyptians, Arabs, and more. Such exposure has given us unparalleled experience in understanding the treatment protocols for our patients from any part of the world.

Vitiligo can affect children as young as one year old. It can affect or begin appearing in old age; or any age; affecting males and females almost equally. It can affect rich and poor, any social class, without any bias on culture, religion or food habits. It affects certain skin types more than others. For example, Vitiligo affects Indians and Mexicans more than any other nationalities. This prevalence is likely to be due to their genetic predisposition.

After having treated over 7000 cases of Vitiligo from across the world, which may be a unique wonder that could happen in the career of any doctor. This exposure has taught many lessons about Vitiligo and widened the understanding of this disease appreciably, which would be far beyond any experience of anyone who may have treated 20 to 50 cases of Vitiligo.

Such an experience has imparted a much better and deeper insight into the cause, behavior, and treatment of this skin disease, which is more than just skin-deep.

If you understand this disease, you learn how to accept it without getting terrified. Dr Shah treats those diseases, which are curable, controls those, which need to be controlled, and suggests those patients accept who cannot be cured.

Homeopathic treatment has been found to be effective in a wide range of vitiligo patients, depending on the duration, extent, type, and causes.
