It does help with diabetes and not to take my word for it but to have science reviewed results is the only way to prove such a claim.

What is the best medicine cream for vitiligo?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is found that a large number of vitiligo patients have low levels of Vitamin B12, Folic Acid and Vitamin C. These nutritional deficiencies often alter the production of melanin and can initiate vitiligo. PABA, folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin C are found useful in treating vitiligo.

Why do vitiligo spread?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Read carefully. You will get your answer The exact cause for the pigmentary disorder(Vitiligo) remains unknown. However, there are theories suggesting autoimmune link, hormonal connection, genetic tendencies, etc. Vitiligo may be an autoimmune disease. These diseases happen when your immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body. In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes in the skin. The familial incidence is almost 20 to 30%. Often observed in the family members. If the parents have Vitiligo, there are more chances of one developing the same. However, it is not a rule. At the same time, numerous cases of vitiligo do not have a relevant family history of Vitiligo. The precipitating factors have been identified as due to pressure of tight clothes (such as on the waist) or certain occupational hazards such as wearing certain rubber hand gloves. Long term intake of certain drugs is found to produce the pigmentary disorder. In many cases, especially in children, we often have no clue why one develops vitiligo.

Is vitiligo indicated for massage?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No. It is systemically contraindicated, which means the person should not be massaged at all. Impetigo is highly contagious and the infected person should see a doctor. After they are completely sign and symptom free, then they can reschedule for a massage.

Does vitiligo cover your whole body?

Asked by Wiki User

No vitiligo cannot change the color of one's entire body uniformly, it causes change of color in the form of patches. Albinism is the disease which is related with complete loss of pigmentation.

No, Vitiligo is not so dangerous disease.

No, vitiligo's simply a pigmentation deficiency in which the melanin cells are not producing pigment, therefore the skin turns white. It's not contagious either.

What is vitiligo?

Asked by Getacar

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). The vitiligo covers my neck, and one-fourth of my face. I looked for another dermatologist because i lost hope with my past dermatologists. Then somebody recommended me a good natural treatment and it worked very well. Now i'm 90% cured. With only 1 1/2 month of treatment. Read this review, it helped me a lot: www.naturalvitiligotreatmentsystems.com

Are there any over the counter treatments that will help reduce the effects of Vitiligo?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Nothing that's safe or reliable. You may find some organic "remedies" that basically cover it up, but in terms of treating this medical condition, which some dermatologists believe is an auto-immune disease, there are some new therapies and medications that are worth exploring. You may want to make an appointment with a dermatologist and get your condition evaluated, so that it can be treated.

Who discoverd vitiligo?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Three myths about the treatment of vitiligo prevail in the medical profession.

The first myth is that treatment of vitiligo is "impossible." This is clearly not true and the majority of patients can achieve good results.

The second myth is that oral psoralens, which form the basis for some vitiligo treatments are "toxic to the liver." Oral psoralens are not toxic to the liver.

The third myth is that psoralen + UVA (PUVA) treatments for vitiligo "cause cancer of the skin." When used to treat vitiligo, PUVA therapy requires only a limited number of treatments-approximately 150 in number that has not been shown to cause skin cancer. By comparison, PUVA treatments for psoriasis can be as many as double the number for vitiligo. It has been shown that a small percentage of patients who receive more than 250 PUVA treatments can develop treatable squamous cell cancers of the skin.

Are you at an increased risk from Skin cancer if you have vitiligo?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No, vitiligo is not dangerous and it causes no harm except it causes de-pigmentation. It's absolutely not a precancerous condition; infact skin cancer has nothing to do with vitiligo.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the number one cause of skin cancer so excessive exposure to sun should be avoided both by vitiligo and non vitiligo people.
