Vitiligo or Leucoderma:
Vitiligo is a white patch that can occur anywhere on the body. All of us would have seen people with vitiligo around us. A lot of people who have just been diagnosed with vitiligo or who have been taking allopathic medicines, come to us asking if we can help.
How common is vitiligo:
Around 4 to 8% of people suffer from vitiligo in India. India has the highest prevalence rate for vitiligo.
What is vitiligo:
Vitiligo is a white patch that can happen anywhere on the body. It can occur in children, adults, males, females. Once it comes, it keeps spreading. It affects a particular part of the body or spreads to the entire body. Millions of people suffer from vitiligo.
The reason you find millions of people with vitiligo around you is because there is no treatment, if there was a treatment, you won't find so many people around you with vitiligo. Will you?
Cause of Vitiligo:
It is usually hereditary, it runs in the family, it does not have to be your immediate family, it can be your parents, grandparents, uncle's, aunt's, great-grandparents, could be anyone. If there is a family history, there is a chance that you might get it. In a lot of people, it remains dormant in the body, it doesn't come out, and it is known to come out when you go through anxiety, stress, and emotional disturbances. In fact, most diseases that are hereditary tend to come out when you go through anxiety or emotional disturbances.
If you are going through emotional trauma, there is every chance that your vitiligo will spread.
Once vitiligo is diagnosed, they put you on steroid creams, steroid injections. If this does not work, they give you Ultraviolet Rays, if this also does not help, they talk about skin grafting, but most of the time, none of these are successful. They do have their amount of success, but the percentage is very low.
The first thing I ask people who come to me with Vitiligo is, how is it bothering you? They look at me, what do you mean how is it bothering, can't you see that it is there? I say, yeah I can see but how is it bothering you? Well, I have got a patch and it bothers me. Is it paining? No. Itching? No.If you leave it alone, will it cause any harm to your body? No. So, how is it bothering you? Vitiligo will not bother you unlike other diseases like psoriasis which causes psoriatic arthritis, your nails get affected, a lot of things happen but in vitiligo, even if you leave it alone, it will not do anything to your body.
Vitiligo is hypopigmentation of the skin which means there is a white patch on the skin, the only issue is the social stigma that the disease carries. It is the people who make you feel terrible about it.
I will tell you a case of Vitiligo, there was a young girl about 20 years old. She had one small patch on the lip, she says everybody who talks to me, they do not look at me, they look at my patch. She was so conscious that whenever she used to speak she would cover her lip, always used to hide that side of lip while talking so that nobody can see it and two years down the lane her face has become like that, now she cannot talk normally, that is the amount of consciousness we have about people, that is how much we are bothered about what people think about us, it is very unfortunate but that is how we are, it is a human tendency.What I am trying to tell you is, vitiligo does not cause any problem except the social stigma that is attached to it.
We get a lot of young kids with vitiligo and most of them have a patch on the eyelids. If they are brought to us in the initial stage, they respond most beautifully and very fast.
We get children and adults coming to us after trying steroids, ultraviolet rays but the most successful cases that we are able to treat is are the ones come in the first five years of the disease.
People who come to us in the initial stage, they need to realize that vitiligo is a process that is happening from the inside, it is not an external problem. The disease process that will go on for about 6 months to1 year that means our primary aim is to stop the spread of the disease, to stop the activity that is happening inside the body.
So if you come to us expecting something to happen in the first 2 to 3 months that happens very rarely. Some people respond right in the beginning also, but the first three to six months, we focus on stopping the activity in the body. That means you should not be getting new patches or the existing patch should not spread, a little bit will happen, but at the end of six months, the activity stops in most people.Once the activity stops, the old patches start receding and start getting pigmented again.
People who are already on allopathic medication:
We make them stop their allopathic medication and ask them to take Homeopathy for three to six months. Most people respond in about three to six months, there are some people that take a longer time to respond.
What happens if you don't treat vitiligo?
If left alone, vitiligo will not harm your body in any way but the white patches continue to grow and spread all over the body making you feel insecure about yourself.
People say you are not supposed to eat yogurt and fish together, I don't know the logic behind it but as far as I am concerned, I do not recommend any diet restrictions. Life is supposed to be enjoyed, have a good time, and enjoy yourself.
Do's and Don'ts:
The most important thing is not to be conscious about your vitiligo, having a white patch on your body does not stop you from who you are, it does not take away the goodness, the excellence, the brains that you have, it does not make you any less competent.
It is a choice that you are making, I have a white patch, I am conscious, I cannot talk or face people, I am not good enough, and everybody is looking at me. That is not true, nobody has the time to think about your patch or look at your patch. It is your own mind that is making you think like that, get out of that.
If you remain confident and don't let vitiligo affect you, it will go very fast but if you give it a lot of importance and think that it is everything in your life, it will take its own sweet time to go. Forget about the problem, to hell with the world. You just take care of yourself and be happy.
What would I do if I were in your place?
I would for sure not start steroids or ultraviolet rays. I know that I am not risking anything by giving Homeopathy around 3 to 6 months to try and take care of vitiligo.
Do not start on any allopathic medications until you have given Homeopathy a try for at least about three to six months. Trust me, nothing is going to happen to you in these three to six months' time. But if these medicines can help you stop the spread and get rid of vitiligo permanently for the rest of your life, isn't it worth giving it a try?
Take care. Stay safe.
