Natural Home Remedies for White Paches On the Skin

Home Remedies for White Patches on the Skin (Leucoderma)

White Patches on the Skin, also known as vitiligo, is a distressing skin condition. The word literally means white skin. There is
a gradual loss of the pigment melanin from the skin layers which results in white patches. These patches look ugly, especially
in persons with a dark complexion. The condition does not cause any organic harm. This disease is caused neither by any
germs, nor is it due to bad blood. It is considered to be neither infectious nor contagious.

The problem usually starts with a small white spot which later develops into patches. These patches are pale in the beginning,
but become whiter and whiter as tune passes by due to loss of pigment As the spots enlarge, they merge into each other and,
in course of time, form a very broad patch.
In some cases, most of the skin of the body may be covered with white patches.

The main causes of White Patches on the Skin are said to be excessive mental worry, chronic or acute gastric disorders,
impaired hepatic function such as jaundice, worms or other parasites in the alimentary canal, typhoid, a defective perspiratory
mechanism, and bum injuries. Heredity is also a well-recognised causative factor.
