Some facts on Vitiligo

About Vitiligo

“Sudu Kabara” (සුදු කබර) or “Speethra” - the indigenous equivalents for Vitiligo or Leucoderma – arouses diverse feelings ranging from anxiety to anguish and pity to revulsion.

Vitiligo is a disorder of the skin where the natural colour is gradually displaced by small white patches that first appear around the eyes, lips, at the finger tips etc, and then spread inexorably to all other parts of the body. Though it does not cause any physical pain or hinder the day to day work, it carries with it a severe social stigma and creates much mental agony.

Causes of Vitiligo

The causes of this disorder vary from fact to fiction. Many a popular belief points to rat, cat or snake bites as the primary cause of this disorder while a despairing few even believe it to be a curse of God. According to Western Medical Science, the actual cause is the gradual erosion of Melanin in cells – the pigment that gives the skin its natural colour. Even the other factors like Diabetes, Chronic Catarrh, and mental stress too can contribute a great deal to the causes of this disease. Though “Sudu Kabara” or Vitiligo is a despair of Western Medicine offering little or no help to its sufferers, ayurvedic medicine has been highly successful in arresting and curing it completely and permanently.
