Vitiligo is a long term distressing skin condition signalize by patches of the skin losing their pigment due to the gradual loss of cells known as melanocytes. The patches of skin affected become clearly white with sharp edges. Even the hair from the skin can also turn into white colour.
The patches mostly start appearing on areas of skin that are more exposed to the sun. It is more evident in people having dark skin. Vitiligo can give rise to psychological stress and those affected may be stigmatized.
Researches have shown that Vitiligo is a multifactorial disease. Genetic susceptibility and environmental factors both collectively play a key role in causing this condition. Some of the other factors that make people more prone to this condition include:
- Environmental factors: A lot of people develop this disorder in their twenties; however, it can arise at any age. People of all races and both genders can get affected by vitiligo equally. However, in majority of cases, it is more noticeable in people having dark complexion.
- Autoimmune diseases: Although researchers do not have any strong evidence why this disorder is associated with autoimmune diseases, but people affected with some autoimmune diseases like hyperthyroidism are at more risk to get vitiligo as compared to those who do not have any autoimmune diseases.
- Genetic susceptibility: This disease might also run in families. Those kids whose parents have vitiligo are more likely to develop vitiligo. However, generally children will not get it even if one parent has it.
- Nutritional deficiencies: Many studies have shown that this condition can be develop in people with nutritional deficiencies, which are mostly caused by taking a wrong diet comprising of denatured foods such as white sugar, white flour and some tinned products which are low in nutrients.
- Other external triggers: Some other external triggers like sunburn, skin injury, mental distress and some physical illness can also play a major role in causing Vitiligo.
