Vitiligo treatment. Anti Vitiligo Oil.

Article / Review by on January 20, 2010 – 12:37 am7 Comments

What Causes Vitiligo?

The cause is not known. Vitiligo may be an autoimmune disease. These diseases happen when your immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body. In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes in the skin. It is also possible that one or more genes may make a person more likely to get the disorder.

Some researchers think that the melanocytes destroy themselves. Others think that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress can cause vitiligo. But these events have not been proven to cause vitiligo.

Will the White Patches Spread?
There is no way to tell if vitiligo will spread. For some people, the white patches do not spread. But often the white patches will spread to other areas of the body. For some people, vitiligo spreads slowly, over many years. For other people, spreading occurs quickly. Some people have reported more white patches after physical or emotional stress.

What are the treatments for vitiligo?

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the condition, a cure is not available. Vitiligo treatment may help make the skin look better. The choice of treatment depends on:

•The number of white patches
•How widespread the patches are
•The treatment the person prefers to use.
Some treatments are not right for everyone. Many treatments can have unwanted side effects. Treatments can take a long time, and sometimes they don’t work.

Current treatment options for vitiligo include medical, surgical, and other treatments. Most treatments are either costly or have some serious side effects and take a lot of time.

Medical treatments for vitiligo include:

•Medicines (such as steroid creams) that you put on the skin – Long-term use of steroid creams can cause side-effects which include thinning of the skin and stretch marks. Steroids work partly by suppressing the immune system (which probably attack the melanocytes).
•Medicines that you take by mouth
•A treatment that uses medicine plus ultraviolet A (UVA) light (PUVA) – However, it is time-consuming, and care must be taken to avoid side effects, which can sometimes be severe.

Treatments are done in a doctor’s office under artificial UVA light once or twice a week. The doctor or nurse applies a thin coat of psoralen to your white patches about 30 minutes before exposing you to enough UVA light to turn the affected area pink. The doctor usually increases the dose of UVA light slowly over many weeks. Eventually, the pink areas fade and a more normal skin color appears. After each treatment, you wash your skin with soap and water and apply a sunscreen before leaving the doctor’s office.

There are two major potential side effects of topical PUVA therapy: (1) severe sunburn and blistering and (2) too much repigmentation or darkening (hyperpigmentation) of the treated patches or the normal skin surrounding the vitiligo.

Sunburn, nausea, vomiting, itching, abnormal hair growth and overdarkening of the skin are potential short-term side effects of oral PUVAt, whether it’s done in the doctor’s office or using natural sun. Your risk of skin cancer may be increased if you use this therapy long term.

•Removing the color from other areas so they match the white patches – complete depigmenting of all the skin on he body – only done in extreme cases of vitiligo.

Surgical treatments for vitiligo include:

•Skin grafts from a person’s own tissues. The doctor takes skin from one area of a patient’s body and attaches it to another area. This is sometimes used for people with small patches of vitiligo.
•Tattooing small areas of skin.

How does vitiligo affect people psychologically?

It can be extremely painful for people with vitiligo to go out in public. The executive director of the Vitiligo foundatuion says:

“When was the last time you saw someone with vitiligo handling your food? It is the public’s image that it is some leprosy-type of disease,” he says. “A lot of folks feel this disease has trapped them and kept them away from their life goals.”

The good news?

Herbal treatments are a proven way of vitiligo. These treatments are based on Psoralens. Psoralen occurs naturally and sensitizes human skin to the tanning effect of sun light by enhancing pigmentation.

Anti vitiligo oil review:

One product stands out in the treatment of vitiligo by getting rid of white patches and regaining pigmentation of the skin – Anti-Vitiligo Oil.

It contains 4 natural ingredients, all clinically proven to be beneficial:
1- Coconut oil – Coconut oil has a high content of vitamin E, which is a potent anti oxidant anti- rancidity agent.
2- Psoralea Coryli Folia – a rich source of naturally occurring psoralen which is a time tested treatment of the white skin patches of vitiligo.
3- Black cumin – Black cumin is the layman name for seeds of Nigella sativa. Seeds of Nigella sativa have also been have an immuno-modulatory as well as anti cancer effect
4- Barberry Root – It contains for example the alkaloids like berbamine, berberine, and oxyacanthine. Other compounds include tannins, chelidonic acid and resins. It is also quite rich in B-vitamin thiamine, lutein, vitamin C, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, zinc, chromium, and cobalt. This herb has also been shown in scientific studies to possess antioxidant and cytoprotective properties.
