Vitiligo a chronic skin condition is characterized by portions of the skin losing its pigment because melanocytes (cells that make pigment in the skin) are destroyed. Vitiligo can also affect the mucous membranes (such as the tissue inside the mouth and nose) and the eye. It is an autoimmune disease (happens when your immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body). In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes in the skin. It is also possible that one or more genes may make a person more likely to get the disorder. Current treatment options include oral medications, local creams, ultraviolet A (UVA) light (PUVA) and/or surgical grafts. Most treatments are aimed at restoring color to the white patches of skin.
Here is a case treated purely homoeopathically, only by oral medication and the patient got rid of his problem in less than a year’s time. It’s been five long years and he still hasn’t reported back a relapse.
