Vitiligo Introduction

Vitiligo is a skin disease which presents as white patches on different parts of the body. This is due to the destruction or under production of the cells that make pigment (color) in the skin. These color cells are called as melanocytes. Vitiligo can also affect the muco cutaneous junctions (where skin meets mucus membranes) such as the tissue inside the mouth and nose and the eyes.

Vitiligo can affect at any age, both sexes equally and people of any race or religion. IT may be said that it is more recognisable in people with dark skin.

White patches of different shapes and sizes on the skin are the main and only sign of vitiligo. These patches are more commonly seen in sun exposed parts of the body.

Understanding, managing and treating vitiligo is the hallmark of My similia clinic. Homeopathy therapy is best suited for vitiligo, though the line of treatment varies upon the stage and extent of the disease.

Our Case Studies

My 2 years old girl was successfully treated for vitiligo within 6 months.

This case study of a 2 years old girl child with vitiligo was a learning experience for us. Miss K.J.G a 2 years old girl (case file number- 768) registered with us having vitiligo around her mouth. Parents could recognise it to be vitiligo as they were both suffering from vitiligo since years.

Vitiligo spots were seen since 6 months and it made both the parents worried as they knew it to be a chronic disease. They visited their physician who was treating them for vitiligo and he was of the opinion that it may spread fast as the child is having a strong family history.
She was treated with ayurvedic medicines as well as few local ointments. Parents were not satisfied as it was spreading slowly and many new spots seemed to be appearing elsewhere on the body.
They came to know about us through one of our existing patient whom we treated for eczema. Patient’s father got in touch with us via phone call and we discussed at length about the disease as well as its possible outcomes. He was happy as for the first time he got his answers in professional manner without being forced to go for the treatment.
Patient got registered on 1st of february 2017 and all her details were collected through a detailed questionnaire. Photos of affected areas were also collected for further reference.
Her first batch of medicines were sent with instructions to take the medicines. Parents were advised not to examine the patches on regular basis.
On first follow up comparative photos were sent and it was noticed that vitiligo spots were same as before without many changes. Although father was happy to state that no new spots were noticed.
Second batch of medicines were sent with increased potency. On giving follow up parents were happy to state that spots have reduced and fading.
In 6 months time vitiligo spots reduced by 80%. Parents were very happy. Her treatment is still continued for complete recovery and to avoid relapses.
This case proved that homeopathic medicines are very effective in early cases of vitiligo in children.
