    Leucoderma(Vitiligo)

    Leucoderma(Vitiligo) - White Patches Causes, Symptoms and Management in Ayurveda

    Leucoderma, also known as Vitiligo, is a distressing skin condition. The word literally means “White skin”. There is gradual loss of pigment melanin from the skin layers which results in white patches. These patches look ugly, specially in persons with dark complexions.

    The condition does not cause any organic harm. It, however, brings about great psychological tension to the patient who is more embarrassed than the victim of any pain or discomfort. The condition thus, besides being a medical problem, also becomes a social stigma.

    Leucoderma is a fairly common disorder and it affects one per cent or more of the world’s population. The incidence is a little higher in India. The disorder can occur at any age in either sex in normal skin. It is, however, more common than men. The most affected areas are the hands, neck, back and the wrist in that order.

    How does leucoderma develop in our body?

    Many wrong beliefs are prevalent about the causes of leucoderma. It is not caused by eating fish and drinking milk at the same time, as is generally believed because even vegetarians suffer from this disorder. Other food combinations such as pumpkin and milk, onion and milk as possible causes of the leucoderma also have no basis. 

    Leucoderma is not caused by any germs; nor is due to bad blood. It is neither infection nor contagious. It cannot be transmitted from one person to another by physical contact.

    The main causes of leucoderma are excessive. Mental distress, chronic or acute gastric disorder, impaired hepatic function such as jaundice, worms or other parasites in the alimentary canal. Ailments like typhoid which affects the gastro-intestinal-tract, defective perspiration mechanism and burn injuries. Often the hormone secreting glands are involved in this disorder. Heredity is also a causative factor and about 30% of patients have family history of the disorder. Majorly following are the main causes of leukoderma.

    Impaired liver functions Impaired digestive system Worm infestations Injuries Genetic cause Blood impairment: according to ayurvedaPap karmaj: bad activities in past life according to ayurveda such as disrespecting teachers, elders and priests. Dev Prakop: as a punishment of god for any sins.
