Vitiligo
« on: January 20, 2013, 11:16:29 AM »
I have a friend who has this disease named Vitiligo. Is Vitiligo a communicable disease? If so how can we prevent from spreading?

Is an anti immune disease in which pigment cell (melanocytes) are destroyed resulting in irregularly shaped white patches on the skin.
It is very difficulty to cure . About 25% cure rate mainly small area 2 squire inches .
Only 3% cases have success rate after treatment. its not a communicable disease.

Vitiligo is a genetic condition in which the skin pigment loses melanin and turns white. This is not a contagious condition. Vitiligo may be confined to certain areas of the body or may occur in several places on the body. These white spots can appear on any part of the body such as skin, hair (eyebrows, on head, eyelids, and beard), eyes, inside of the mouth, genitals. Your doctor will examine the patch by physical examination and analyze the condition. You may be asked about your symptoms, family, or history. Tests can be done according to that. Most doctors suggest Benoquin Cream for Vitiligo. But Taking medicine without a doctor's advice can cause serious damage to your health.
