Vitiligo (vit-ih-lie-go) is a disease that causes loss of skin color in spots. The degree and rate of color loss of vitiligo are unpredictable. It can affect the skin of any part of the body. It occurs when cells that produce melanin die or stop working. Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more pronounced in people with darker skin. The case is not fatal or contagious. It can be stressful or make you feel uncomfortable towards yourself. Treatment of Vitiligo can restore the color of the damaged skin. But it does not prevent the continuous loss of the skin color and reappearance.
The main sign of vitiligo is irregular skin color. The color usually appears in sun-exposed areas, such as hands, feet, arms, face, and lips.
Signs of Vitiligo include:
1. Irregular skin tone
2. It involves premature whitening of the hair on the scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows or beard
3. Loss of color in the tissues lining the mouth and nose (mucous membranes)
4. Loss or change of color of the inner layer of the eye (retina)
Vitiligo occurs when cells producing pigment (melanocytes) die or stop producing melanin, a pigment that gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes. Skin patches become lighter or brighter.
This may be due to family history or a trigger event, such as sunburn, stress or exposure to industrial chemicals.
People with vitiligo may be subject to increased risk of:
1. Social or psychological discomfort
2. Sunburn and skin cancer
3. Eye problems, such as iritis
4. Hearing loss
There are many treatments available to help even the skin tone. The results are different and unpredictable. Some treatments may lead to serious side effects. Therefore, the doctor may suggest that you first try to improve the appearance of your skin by applying tanning or makeup products.
If you and the doctor decide to treat your condition with medication, surgery or treatment, it may take several months to judge its effectiveness.
