Loss of Pigmentation

When skin doesn’t produce enough melanin, some of your skin patches may become lighter than the rest of your skin tone. These white patches may either be localized or dispersed throughout the body.

Pigment melanin imparts your hair, eyes, and skin their color and is produced by melanocyte skin cells.

This disruption in melanin production can be brought about by a variety of factors including your genetics and environmental conditions. Other reasons might include burns, infection or scarring.

One can develop this skin disorder either from birth or later in life.

People of any religion or race might suffer from loss of pigmentation. If not treated may lead to complications such as social embarrassment and increased risk of cancer.

Holistic treatments such as homeopathy are very effective to treat this skin condition.  By tracing the underlying cause through a proper analysis, natural homeopathic medicines are prescribed.

Skin Conditions That Can Lead to Hypopigmentation Include

Albinism:

Albinism

It is a rare genetic disorder which results due to a defect in the gene that affects melanin production.

This causes reduced melanin and hence loss of color.

As a result, your hair and skin turns white and eyes blue in color.

Vitiligo:

Vitiligo is also known as leucoderma. Though the exact cause of vitiligo is not known yet it may be caused due to autoimmune attack where the melanocyte cells get destroyed.

The spots may occur anywhere over the body or only on specific areas.

Leucoderma treatment in homeopathy considers the physical, emotion and mental health of the patient for providing all-round relief.
