Vitiligo is an autoimmune condition of the skin characterized by de-pigmented patches on the skin due to loss of melanin producing cells. Treatment along with management helps cure the problem. Follow this:
PROTECT SKIN FROM SUN BY APPLYING SUNSCREENS
Generously apply sunscreen everyday even if you are inside. When skin has lost it’s color it becomes more prone to sun burn. But it is noted that early morning sunlight is having curative action in reviving the pigment back to skin.
Choose a Sunscreen having Broad spectrum protection against UVA/UVB Rays with PA+++.Sunscreen should also be water resistant so that will not drain away with perspiration.
Do reapply sunscreens after every 2 hours when doing outdoor activity.
DRINK WATER KEPT OVERNIGHT IN COPPER VESSEL
Copper ions help in building up pigmentation in the skin again.
EXPOSURE TO EARLY MORNING SUN LIGHT
Exposed the affected areas to early morning sunlight for about 20 minutes on daily basis.
