Vitiligo is a medical illness that causes white discolored patches on your skin. When the body's immune system destroys melanocytes (the cells that generate melanin), it affects the skin. Vitiligo begins with a few white patches on the skin and gradually spreads throughout your body. According to a study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, vitiligo psychologically affects people, making them feel conscious and insecure about their appearance.

However, this is not the end of your world! Vitiligo may have its effects on your mental and physical health, but it can be treated and bought under control. Let us first understand this condition better.

Vitiligo can be caused by autoimmune disorders, physical wounds, and hereditary or neurogenic causes, among others. Patchy loss of pigment on your skin, premature greying, and discolored patches in the lining of your mouth could be an indication of vitiligo.

Let's have a look at some vitiligo treatment options:

  • Protect yourself from the sun if you have vitiligo symptoms. Sunburns can be dangerous. Because there isn't enough melanin to protect the skin from the sun, it might be severely damaged. Always use SPF 30 sunscreen to protect your skin from long-term harm.
  • Get a medically approved tattoo technique which is known as Micropigmentation. In this treatment, small particles of natural pigment are implanted under your patchy skin that can help cover the discoloring.
  • There is another non-medical treatment that includes the use of cosmetics also known as the camouflage technique.  In this treatment you can cover your white patches using a good foundation or a concealer. This technique could have side effects where the cosmetics can further affect the skin. Cosmetics can also get expensive and is not a long-lasting solution.
  • Applied medications can also be used to add color to the patch. You may be prescribed cortisteroid that can be applied to the skin to hide the patches. While these medications only work on some areas of your body such as the face; it can have side effects, causing the skin to dry up and turn fragile.
  • Surgery is another form of treatment chosen to treat vitiligo patches. It is a skin treatment where one part of your skin is removed and placed on the areas with discolored patches surgically. As this is a treatment that uses the knife the side effects you may experience includes failure to work, cobblestone-like skin, and infection.
