Is vitiligo contagious?

Vitiligo Vitiligo is a pigmentation disorder in the human skin. The human skin contains special skin cells (melanocytes) that produce the pigment melanin which colors the skin. Vitiligo is not contagious or infectious skin condition. The precise cause of vitiligo is complex and not fully understood, but there is some evidence suggesting it is caused by a combination of auto-immune, genetic, and environmental factors.

Auto-Immunity Of all that we know about causes of vitiligo, auto-immunity is one of the best understood factors.

Inheritance

Vitiligo is certainly more common in the blood relations of an affected individual. It is however clear that the inheritance in vitiligo is not simple, and it currently is not possible to predict the probability of vitiligo in the offspring of an affected would be parent.

What is the best makeup for vitiligo?

I would recommend starting with Dermablend, which is made to cover things like vitiligo. If that doesn't work, and it SHOULD--it almost always does--you'll need to use Joe Blasco Ultrabase. Hope it doesn't come to that, because Ultrabase, which is theatrical cream foundation, is nasty, nasty stuff to wear. You can feel this stuff on your face, it's that thick; OTOH, it will cover anything.

How does low and high blood pressure contribute to kidney failure?

As the question suggests, both low and high blood pressures can lead to kidney injury (previously called "kidney failure"). Low blood pressure decreases the blood flow to the kidney, and since the kidney's function depends on adequate blood flow, it may not be able to do its job at such a low blood pressure. Consequently, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), a measure of kidney function, may drop; a low GFR is one measure of kidney injury. If the low blood pressure persists, not only does kidney function decrease, but the kidneys can actually become damaged. Low blood flow can lead to inadequate oxygen delivery to the kidney, which can cause the cells of the kidney to fall apart, die, and leak fluid. All of these are types of so-called acute kidney injury.

High blood pressure can cause proteins to leak into the kidney inappropriately so that protein ends up in the urine (called proteinuria). Long-term proteinuria damages the filtering component of the kidney, which can rapidly lead to acute kidney injury. In addition, high blood pressure can lead to a condition called arteriolar nephrosclerosis, wherein the leaked pressures get into the walls of the kidney's blood vessels, decreasing their ability to do their job. moreover very high blood pressure would disturb the blood composition by eliminating useful components to the urinary system...therefore damaging the important function of kidney , subsequently leading to "kidney failure"

Can you cure vitiligo?

As regards Cure in vitiligo, Different people use the term »Cure« in different context. Some use this term for complete eradication of illness from the body, while others are concerned only with re-pigmentation of the existing spots.

If you mean complete eradication of the disease from you system, that is a tricky matter. Vitiligo results from a derangement of your normal defense mechanisms against infection. The body starts producing antibodies against pigment producing cells of its own skin. No definite causes are known, and so are the remedies. This is a generalized abnormality of your immune system, and there are currently no acceptable permanent means to halt this process.

The damage to pigment producing cells manifests as patches of skin, which have reduced, or no pigment. This is what bothers you, us and every one else.

You cannot cure or halt it, but you can manage the local manifestations (white patches) using topical or oral treatments.

If you disease is not widespread, and is limited you can go for a topical treatment. The one I used and found beneficial is the once form where I got this material.

VITILIGO (Safed Daag)

I have completed my graduation B.A.M.S (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicines and Surgery) from Haridwar Gurukul Kangri. I have completed my M.D. in Lucknow University and I am practising in Lucknow and working with different pharmaceutical company as technical adviser and promoter. I have also worked as Lecturer, Reader & Professor in different Ayurvedic College. This is some information about Vitiligo (Safed Daag):

This is a non-infectious disorder of skin; where white lesions (Patches) are formed. Vitiligo is caused by stoppage of melanin (Colour pigment) formation by melanin producing cell, melanocyte; as a result depigmented macules are formed.

These macules may vary in size and shape and can be located in any part of body even on mucus membrane of lips and genitals

The common areas affected are face; hand; feet; axillae; groins; trunk.

The areas which are subjected to friction and trauma are usually involved; and anywhere in skin white depigmented Scar is formed Vitiligo can also be precipitated due to these causative factors:

1. Persistant pressure of string of underwear or in a person who wear tight string of under wear

2. Use of plastic slippers (over dorsa of feet)Plastic Bindi and Rubber gloves

3. Use of rubber brassieres

In Ayurveda all the skin ailments are usually described under the head "Kusth"

Vitiligo in Ayurveda classical text is described as "Svitra" or "SHVETA KUSTH" while classifying Kusth in its 18 main types; Ancient Ayurvedic Erudite had omitted Vitiligo due to its non infectious nature

The lesion of Vitiligo is painless and remains sensory unlike leprosy.

Except the cosmetic defect Vitiligo is an absolutely harmless disease.

TREATMENT

There is a common myth about the Vitiligo that it cannot be cured but contrary to this; remarkable repigmentation can be achieved in every patient and its spread can be arrested; provided that patient follows dietary restrictions and take appropriate treatment for prescribed duration.

A proper assessment of known causative factor of Vitiligo; such as plastic slippers; gloves; and other plastic materials; pressure or traumas is very mandatory and if any such factor instruct patient to discard them.

The Ayurvedic concept regarding the treatment of Vitiligo is comprehensive

Both Sodhan (Purifications) and Saman Chikitsa is being advocated for the treatment

Sodhan is chiefly performed with liquid extract of Kakoudambur (FICUS HISPIDA) with sugar lump.

Saman Chikitsa is mainly composed of:

A. KASTHA AUSHADHI (Herbal drugs )

B. RAS AUSHADHI (Herbo- mineral drugs)

A. In group of Kastha Aushadhi there are mainly 2 types of drugs:

1. Photo Sensitizing Drugs

2. Blood purifiers

1) Photo sensitizing drugs: It includes Psoralea corylifolia (Bavachi) Ammi Majus (Aatri lal) Semicarpus anacardium (Marking nut) and Ficus hispida (Kakoudambur).These Drugs are used locally as well as systemically with sun exposure.

Sun exposure is usually advised after 3 hours of oral administration; and 45 minutes of local application of the medicines at least for 10 minutes. These drugs are given once a day during daytime only; because without sun exposure these drugs cannot initiate repigmentation.

2) Blood Purifiers : As Svitra (Vitiligo) is a disease of Rakta Vikrati(Auto immune disorder)Therefore blood purifying drugs like Curcuma longa ; Eclipta Alba ;Tinospora Cordifolia ; Hemidascus indicus ; Acacia catechu ;Acaranthes aspera are used to redress the blood morbidity.

B. Ras Aushadhi (Herbo-mineral drugs): It includes chiefly Ras Manikya, Taal Sindur, Sameer Pannag Ras, and Talkeshwar Ras. These drugs act like an Immuno Supressant and usually used in those patient where spread of disease is very fast to arrest the spread of disease.

TAMRA Bhasm; KASHISH Bhasm; are also used to initiate repigmentation.

After initiation of repigmentation; treatment must be continued till the desired complete repigmentation of all the lesions is achieved. But some stubborn lesions especially of mucosal surface of palms and fingers tips; sometimes respond very poorly or incomplete.

These residual repigmented area can be subjected to camouflage .For this Paste made from Mehndi (Henna) leaves is applied to affected area or lotion made from root of Plumbago Zeylenica in absolute alcohol is painted over skin. This impart natural colour which last for two or four days.

What are Small tiny pin sized white bumps on face?

Five Reasons Little White Bumps Are On Your Face and How to Get Rid Of Them by Naweko San-Joyz Are you making these mistakes each time you spot a little white little bump on your face? Fixing those little white bumps starts with a small dose of education and ends with a big dose of prevention. After understanding the five reasons below, your little bumps should give way to clearer skin. Reason #1: You have no clue what those little white bumps are anyway. Little white bumps, or milia, are keratin-filled cysts, or simply little globs of protein under the skin. There are generally two types of milia. Primary milia may result from oil glands that have not fully or properly developed. Secondary milia result from trauma to the skin. Reason #2: You think all little white bumps are acne, and treat them that way. Just because you have little white bumps on your face does not necessarily mean that you have acne. Milia, are little balls of protein beneath the skin that do not have a pore, or hole in the skin through which to escape. Comedones or whiteheads are excess fats and wastes that are trapped in a hair follicle and so they clog up the pore. In short, milia are proteins trapped within the skin, while comedones are fats and skin debris trapped within the pore. Exfoliating the skin, or removing the dead skin cells from your skin with an abrasive product or chemical, is beneficial. But brutally scrubbing your face with soaps and chemicals too frequently may actually create milia. To avoid this, remember that gentle exfoliation helps prevent excess dead skin cell build-up that could clog your pores and cause whiteheads, not milia. This gentle exfoliation helps make eventual removal of the milia easier because the skin layer around the milia becomes thinner, with frequent, yet gentle exfoliation. In short, Exfoliate your skin to prevent milia, not to cure them. Reason # 3 You have no idea what causes those little white bumps anyway. When you were a baby, you were probably covered with milia that disappear after a few days. Or, you may have inherited milia from your parents. On the other hand, you may develop milia after excessive exposure to the sun. The reasons for developing milia after sun exposure are debatable. According to some studies, the active ingredients sunscreens like Parsol 1789 may cause sun allergies and later lead to a milia breakout. Other studies blame the sun itself for “damaging” the skin can thus causing little white bumps. Some people experience milia around the mouth. This could be the result of fluoride irritation from toothpaste. Reason # 4: No one ever told you how to prevent milia. The best way to prevent milia is to avoid treating your skin with excessively harsh chemicals and to limit sun exposure. To reduce creating milia around the eyes, use eye creams with the least amount of ingredients possible to avoid irritating the delicately thin eye area. Also, gently touch the eyes and avoid rubbing the eyes vigorously so as not to damage the skin. When brushing you teeth, try to keep the pasty foam from staying around your mouth too long. This limits possible fluoride irritation to the skin. Use a sunscreen with the least amount of ingredients. Extraneous ingredients like fragrances may irritate your skin. Additionally, purchase sunscreens that offer physical sun blockage that contain active ingredients like titanium oxide or zinc oxide. Reason #5: You still want to know what you can do right now to get rid of milia. The key to getting rid of milia is realizing that they have no escape route, those little bumps are trapped under the skin. So, to get them out, you’ll need to have a professional like a dermatologist or aesthetician extract them. You can extract the milia yourself, but this involves risks. Precautions You need to ensure that you milia are not symptoms of some underlying disease or illness. Also, if you extract the milia yourself, you may have trouble completely pulling out the cysts, as the removable process may prove too painful. Otherwise, if you are confident with your health and courage, you can cleanse your hands and face. Then wet a cloth with warm water and apply it to your face for a few minutes. Gently apply a sterile needle to the center of the little white bump to create a tiny opening in the skin. Wrap your thumbs in a clean tissue and, using your thumbs, proceed to gently squeeze the contents of the little white bump out. Finally, cleanse the area of the extracted little white bump with an astringent. Now, you have no reason to walk around with little white bumps on your face. If you still think you do, please consider the possibility that you’re just telling yourself little white bumpy lies.

I have vitiligo for 8 years now and I had tried different treatments (PUVA, topical steroid, meladinine cream/solution with exposure to sunlight/PUVA, oral meladinine, oil of bergamot).
