Vitiligo causes loss of skin color in form of depigmented or white areas from any parts of the body.

It is not contagious disease. Here, the pigment cells of the skin, melanocytes are destroyed in certain areas which causes loss of skin color in blotches. The hair from the affected area of skin may also become white like that of affected skin.

Although any part of the body can be affected by vitiligo. But, depigmentation first appears on sun exposed areas of the skin such as forearms, face and legs. It can also affect the mucus membranes.

“Homoeopathic treatment focuses on controlling the further destruction of melanocytes and stimulating the pigmentation at affected parts of the body. Constitutional homoeopathic treatment aims to activate the melanin pigment and restores the color of affected area.”


The cause is not known but autoimmunity is thought to be a one of the most responsible causes for the development of disease.
It happens when our own immunity mistakenly attacks some parts of our own body,Genetic predisposition/ susceptibility or weakened immunity are also one of the causes.
Risk factors include hyperthyroidism, history of sun burn, alopecia areata, and pernicious anemia.
