Know the various treatments that you can
do to cure vitilgo.
Today, vitiligo therapy will require the use of medications or otherwise
surgery. But even so, the relative inefficacy of both medications is well
known, with somehow an elevated risk of potentially adverse side
effects, whilst being expensive and out of reach for the majority of
people.
Steroids, photo chemotherapy, immunomodulators, as well as
depigmentation therapy are among the clinical vitiligo therapies
accessible.
Steroid Treatment
Steroid creams are added to spots of white skin in order to restore the
initial skin color. The cream must be used for at least three months in
order to see some difference. The disadvantage of this therapy is that it
can cause unpleasant side effects like increased resistance to infection,
migraine headaches, as well as vision disorders. These particular creams
are really not intended for use in treating infants or where the infected
parts of the body are the ears, armpits, or otherwise genitals.
Monobenzone is indeed a pigment-removal agent. It functions by
increasing the melanin removal from skin cells. It is the best vitiligo
treatment which is available.
Immunomodulators
This are identical to steroids in that they are used whenever the immune
system is accused of being active in the degradation of melanocytes, but
their efficacy is limited. It is worth noting that immunomodulators
could increase the risk of particularly lymphoma as well as skin cancer.
Photo chemotherapy of Psoralen
This is the process of re-pigmenting white areas of skin with
the ultraviolet light in conjunction with psoralen cream or medications.
This procedure is indeed time-consuming, as it necessitates two to three
monthly outpatient sessions over a span of several months. The therapy
is therefore prohibitively costly, and it increases the chance of skin
cancer, skin blistering, as well as eye injury. Benoquin Ointment is
often used to treat skin discoloration. It is particularly used
for permanently lightening the skin of people who have severe vitiligo.
Therapy for Pigmentation
Depigmentation surgery might be recommended if the particular white
patches are common and occupy the majority of the body. Throughout
this case, the patient may want to have the remainder of his or her skin
depigmented, by bleaching the unaffected regions in order to balance the
color of the vitiligo-affected areas This treatment's known adverse
effects include intense exposure to heat, inflammation, as well as itchy,
dry skin.
As previously mentioned, conventional vitiligo therapies are often
ineffective, so the surgical therapy might be preferred for certain
patients. But even so, the associated costs may prevent the majority of
people from considering this alternative.
Skin Transplantation
This is a popular vitiligo surgical technique in which the skin from an
unaffected region of the entire body is applied to a depigmented portion
of the body. Whenever a skin graft is refused, it causes inflammation as
well as infection. Even though the graft is good, the skin could grow a
cobblestoned look, which is unsightly, and raises cosmetic as well as
self-esteem concerns.
Tattooing
In this case, the white spots are filled in with a unique pigment that
attempts to mimic the skin's natural color. However, exact fits are
exceedingly difficult to locate, so the procedure is only prescribed for
minor white spots.
