About Vitligo

Hi everyone,

I am from China,my brother have Vitligo about 10 years,during this 10 years,we went to many many hospital,and tried many treatment,but no one is ok.Now he is treating in a China hospital,have good effect by their treatment,but I don't know what will  happen in future.

In China,I can't find a good method for this ill,dears,can you tell me whether you know the better way to cure?

And,in this hospital which my brother used,they let the patients to have sun,don't eat fish,mutton,capsicum,Chinese goosebeery,and all pungent foods,I see it is very good for this ill,so if someone know this topic have Vitligo,please don't eat those foods and be noticed - have sun.

Just hope all will cure soon.

Hi

Vitiligo is a chronic skin condition which results to loss of skin cells responsible for pigmentation. The cause may have  genetic or immune factors involved. There are severe cases of vitiligo which requires phototherapy. In the long run, if the condition progresses there may be options for depigmentation. Phototherapy appears to be effective. You may ask your doctor about this. For milder forms, topical steroids have been used.
