Is Vitiligo InfectedAs we all known that Vitiligo is a chronic skin condition which characterized by some parts of the skin losing their pigment. It happens when skin pigment cells lack or are unable to produce. Apart from couple cases of contact with certain chemicals, the cause of vitiligo is still unknown.Meanwhile, vitiligo can occurs among any people without gender and skin color difference. Vitiligo mostly impacts people’s physical appearance and patienst should be treated immediately to avoid the spread of the patches to the entire body. When it comes to the most commonly question that patients most concerned, that is : Is vitiligo contagious?

There is always a fact that Vitiligo is a skin pigment problem . The main cause of this disorder is a defect in the production of the skin pigment which mainly known as melanin. It is not caused by the viral or any other germ infection. So,vitiligo is just a skin pigmentation disorder occurring on the dermal layer of human skin.

However, there are couple of medical research have proved that vitiligo is not contagious skin disease,it differ from other skin disorders or infections. The main cause of the breakdown in melanocytes, is still a mystery. Vitligo has been defined be a combination of autoimmune, genetic, and environmental factors.

Apart from this contagious theory, there are couple of facts which can prove the vitiligo can be inherited through generations, even though not all people will be affected by vitiligo. It is very hard to predict who in particular would be affected by vitiligo.

On the other hand,Many people think that vitiligo is a contagious disease and people who was affected by vitiligo may become a stranger or someone weird. Patient even dont have any courage to even leave their home cuz they are afariding to let somebody see their strange face. People who are not affected by vitiligo even refuse to shake hand, cuz they think that the disorder could be transmitted to them by some physical contact. This misconception should be corrected to help the patient have a normal social life andimprove their social situations and status and get more confidence.
