Vitiligo depigmentation and treatment
leukoderma is a skin condition characterized by the appearance of white patches on the skin that can appear on any part of the body due to depigmentation of the cells; this is as a result of the death of the melanocytes cells that produce our skin pigment melanin. The condition can vary from just one or two white spots to large areas where complete depigmentation of the affected part has been occurred. When the melanocytes die, the cells that form the skin appear white, and this causes what is known as Vitiligo and the process is known as depigmentation. The Vitiligo disease is more common in people who have a family history of certain auto immune diseases such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism and Addison's disease. For some people, although not for everyone, the depigmentation is progressive which may start out as a little white blemish on the skin, over time it can enlarge to cover many inches of the surrounding skin or whole body parts, particularly the hands and feet, to eventually give the appearance of wearing white socks or gloves. The patches often occur symmetrically across both sides on the body, at the same time. These depigmentation patches can be treated with skin lightner products such as Benoquin.
A person affected by Vitiligo
The first few white patches that appear on his skin can be quite tolerable. These depigmentation patches usually appear in patterns. These patterns have three forms. One is the focal pattern wherein depigmentation occurs in a limited area. Second is the segmental pattern wherein patches appear only on one side of the body. Third, which is probably the worst one, is the generalized pattern wherein the depigmentation occurs in different areas of the body. Adding to this is the uncertainty of how the Vitiligo will spread. For some people, the white patches spread gradually while for some, in quick succession. Some findings say that emotional distress can cause the affected areas to increase in number. Common areas of appearance are the armpits, groin, around the mouth, eyes, nostril, navel, and genitals. A person with Vitiligo may also have premature graying of the scalp hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, and beard. Vitiligo treatment aims for the reduction in the white patches that caused due to depigmentation. Therefore use of skin lightner products is the characteristic way of Vitiligo treatment.
