Vitiligo manifests as white spots or patches on the skin. These patches are sometimes itchy when they first develop but that is the only symptom associated with Vitiligo. Vitiligo is not a contagious disease and therefore cannot be transmitted.
These white spots or patches can appear anywhere on the body, but the first loss of pigmentation usually appears; between toes & fingers, under arms, face and neck. It may also affect the lips as well as hair including eyebrow, eyelashes and beard. Even the eyes can sometime lose their pigmentation.
Our individual bodies to react differently to Vitiligo, and some of us see a very slow spread of the condition over time, whilst in others the spread can be rapid. Early treatment is advised to prevent the further spread of the Vitiligo. Once the spread has stopped, the pigmentation process can be treated.
The first signs of Vitiligo (white spots or patches) appear when your Melanocytes stop producing Melanin. Melanin is your natural skin pigment, and which gives our skin its natural skin tone. Therefore the more melanin we produce the darker our skin tone.
This autoimmune disease is what causes the damage to the melanocytes. An autoimmune disease attacks the body’s own healthy cells.
Vitiligo can also manifest after the person has suffered from some sort of trauma. Mental stress brought on by the death of a loved one, changing schools or jobs or even moving home can be very traumatic.
Vitiligo also manifests after the physical trauma of childbirth. Sunburn, chemical damage, allergies, cuts and scratches can often trigger Vitiligo.
There are no physical side effects relating to the condition except for the de-pigmented skin. The only side effect of Vitiligo is the embarrassment it causes the patient. This self-consciousness and social stigma lead to anxiety and stress. Unfortunately, stress causes the Vitiligo to spread further.
