Vitiligo is a chronic, non-contagious skin disorder that can occur in children, women and men of any age group or race. It's a disease which is seen everywhere across the globe and is not at all location centric. Normally, the color of hair, skin and eyes is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning.
The condition is not life-threatening or contagious. It might be stressful at times but not always.Vitiligo occurs when melanin-forming cells die or stop producing melanin. The involved patches of skin become lighter or white. It’s a type of disorder in which your immune system attacks and destroys the melanocytes in the skin.
As per the researches, Vitiligo was found to be a genetic disease where one of the members of the family was already suffering from the same condition.The main causes for vitiligo as per our studies include.
- Auto-immune disorder in the body.
- Genetic tendencies found in a human being.
- Hormonal connections which are seen after/during pregnancy.
- High level of continuous stress or Trauma.
- Major issue or defect of Melanocytes
- Disturbance in oxidant-antioxidant systems due to bad eating habits.
- Use of tighter clothes, frequent and excessive use of plastic sleepers.
Vitiligo can affect men and women of all races equally. And as we have seen its more noticeable in people with dark skin. Vitiligo has irregular shaped patches of skin which are completely white in color. Around half of the patients develop Vitiligo by the age of twenty. And another 40% of them develop it by the age of forty.
The most common areas where vitiligo is found are the hands and face, around body openings (the eyes, nostrils, mouth, umbilicus and genital regions), and within body folds such as the underarms and groin.
