In some cases, most of the skin of the body may be covered with white patches. In rare cases one finds vitiligo spreading all over the body.

The exact cause for the vitiligo (vitiligo) remains unknown. vitiligo (vitiligo) is not caused by any germs, nor is it due to bad blood.

The ground seeds should also be applied to the white spots.
About 35 grams of these seeds should be powdered in vinegar and applied on the white patches. the vitiligo patches.
Vitiligo is a common skin disorder in which white spots appear on the skin usually occurring on both sides of the body in the same location. Vitiligo occurs in 1-2% of the population. The melanocytes are the cells that make the skin color. In people with vitiligo, the immune cells (cells which fight infection) attack the melanocytes and kill them. When the melanocytes in a certain area die the skin turns white. No one knows why the immune cells attack the melanocytes in people with vitiligo.

Vitiligo is a skin disease that causes permanent white spots or patches on the skin. Vitiligo is fairly common affecting 1 out of every 100 people. Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease. Vitiligo occurs when the immune cells start attacking and killing the melanocytes. As the melanocytes die, the skin turns white because it no longer has melanocytes making pigment or color. No one knows why the immune cells attack and kill the melanocytes in patients with vitiligo. In rare instances, vitiligo may affect eye, hair, and gum color. When a person first develops vitiligo, the disease usually starts as flat white spots on the hands or around the eyes. The white spots usually do not itch or hurt. In some people the white patches spread over the entire body. Vitiligo is very difficult to treat. Patients with vitiligo usually require 100-300 treatments over a year or more. The newest treatment for vitiligo involves transplanting melanocytes from areas of normal skin color into the areas without skin color. So without these melanocytes, people with vitiligo are prone to sunburn in their white areas. When the depigmentation process is completed, the patient’s skin is all one uniform color (pale white).

Vitiligo can be a debilitating disease, especially in cultures with dark skin. People with dark skin and vitiligo are often ostracized by their community.
