what causes vitiligoI believe all the people have heard about vitiligo, it is a common skin disease in our life. The symptoms of vitiligo seriously damaged the patient’s appearance, because of this disease, many people suffered from discrimination from others and seriously influence their social contact and induce huge mental burden to themselves. But many people still fell at sea about what causes their vitiligo, in this article, the fundamental cause is loss of pigment in part of their skin induce white spots in their skin, that is vitiligo, but what causes pigment loss? That is because the environment that can produce pigment was destroyed and finally cause pigment loss. So what factors might induce the pigment loss? In this article, I’d like to make a brief introduction of it for your reference.

1. Deficiency of trace elements and immunity function might cause vitiligo.

Trace elements such as zinc, copper iodine and so on can participate in the metabolism of our body, the lack of some trace elements that needed in the synthesis of pigment cells will cause vitiligo, because trace elements cause avoid toxic materials damage our pigment cells, if disproportion or deficiency of trace elements will cause some obstruction if in the pigment cell’s synthesis process.

Anti pigment cells antibody produced by the endocrine system disorder and cause the immune system disorder, it can not recognize autologous pigment cells and make anti agent and antibody react with each other cause the autologous pigment cells damaged make the autologuous pigment cells finally formed into local white patches.

2. Genetic genes can cause the pigment production environment destroyed.

According to some research, we can find out genetic factors also can cause vitiligo, it also will have the atavism in clinical experience. So even the parents of vitiligo patients have no vitiligo, but if there are vitiligo history in any family members in any side of their parent, there vitiligo also have great chanced to be induced by genetic factor. So genetic factor also can cause the loss of pigment.

3. External injuries and external skin irritations also can cause the loss of pigment and finally induce vitiligo.

Some burns, frostbiting, surgery and other external injuries these factors will cause the melanin pigment damaged cause part of the skin whiten, it also can induce vitiligo far from the injuries. If you have wounds, you must treat these properly, because the irritability changes in of our body, neurochemical factors or immunity disorder also can cause sporadic or generalized vitiligo.

Some external skin irritation such as frictions, scratching, pressure and so on also can cause the pigment loss and finally can induce vitiligo. Such as the people wear glasses will have vitiligo on the two sides of their nose bridge and ears. It mainly induce by the melanin pigment cells damaged, let it go, it will cause the immune function disorder and finally cause the vitiligo in other part of their body.

So the pigment production environment destroyed might is the main reason induce vitiligo, vitiligo patients should stay away from these factors might cause the pigment loss and finally induce vitiligo.
