A person's own tissues mat be used for surgical treatment through autologous skin grafts. The doctor removes portions of the pigmented skin and then replaces the affected skin with it. Possible complications for this treatment include infections, scarring, a cobblestone appearance, or a spotty repigmentation. The greatest risk would be the skin's failure to repigment at all.

Vitiligo is not a monster which will eat you or kill you. It is a controllable disease and when we talk about how to remedy and treat Vitiligo then first of all we must know and understand very clearly and specifically that Vitiligo is a general abnormality of some immune system within the body which results into white patches on to the skin.

Infuse a tablespoon of hedge hyssop herbs with a glass of boiling water. Leave the tincture to brew for half an hour and decant it. Drink a tablespoon of the decoction 3 times a day after meal.

Vitiligo affects every race, it crosses the gender lines and economic status has no bearing on it. It can affect young and old alike and everyone that is affected is looking for a cure! Currently, there is no cure for vitiligo. But there are several treatments that have shown great promise in relieving the symptoms.

Herbal treatments have been used for centuries for treating vitiligo. Herbal treatments general involve a comprehensive treatment not only of the symptoms, but of suspected underlying causes. For example, a typical Chinese herbal treatment would address the symptoms of vitiligo with a topical, but it would also attempt to address underlying causes, such as the immune system, digestive system, liver, kidneys, and chi.

Vitiligo Vitiligo or Leukoderma is a skin disease that occurs due to Pigment Loss and results in irregular patches and pale skin. Signs and symptoms Vitiligo can be caused due to stress which affects the human immune system. This will also result in skin patches to shrink, grow or remain the same. The white patches spread on various body parts such as the limbs, torso, face and groin.

Homeopathy is based on the principle of 'like cures like'. As per Homeopathy, diseases occur when the 'vital force' (energy that is the cause of life) gets disturbed.

Vitiligo is neither rare nor common skin problem. It strikes at random and often causes great distress to its victims because it affects their general appearance. Some estimates indicate that 2% of the global population across both genders suffers from vitiligo. There are no racial or genetic differences that influence or prevent the risk of contracting vitiligo.

Simple dietary changes to improve digestion are potentially beneficial to those with vitiligo. Apple cider vinegar just before meals, for example, improves digestion and nutrient absorption, which are shown deficient in those with viitligo.

Removing gluten foods is one of the most important things for vitiligo sufferers. Avoiding wheat, oats, rye, barley and other gluten based foods potentially encourages the system to heal, allowing color to return.

The first option is the medical therapies. When started early, topical steroid therapy helps a great deal in repigmenting the skin meaning returning the color to those white patches that have spread around the body. Doctors advice the patients to apply corticosteroids, which are a group of drugs that resemble the hormones produced by the adrenal gland. Results usually manifest after two to three months of application, taking note this is not a therapy to cure vitiligo but a treatment that can help.
