3 diet restrictions for facial vitiligo patientsVitiligo on face is a skin pigment lost skin disease, facial vitiligo patients need to control their diet in which ways? In the following part, I’d like to mainly divided it into three diet restrictions.

1. Avoid over intake vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a reducing agent, it participate into the tyrosinase metabolism, inhibit the oxidation of dopa, make the formed melanin reduce into colorless substances and water soluble glutenous in that way make the formed melanin decreased. The vitamin C widely exist in fruits, vegetables and plant leaves. The fruits rich in vitamin C include melons, grapefruits and etc. The fruit juice rich in vitamin C include grapefruit juice and orange juice. Some fruit juice can strengthen the vitamin C such as apple juice and grapefruit juice. The vegetables rich in vitamin C include asparagus, cabbages, mustard leaf, peppers and etc. Normally the fruits and vegetables with acidic flavor rich in vitamin C. We emphasize the facial vitiligo patients need to make certain control for the intake of vitamin C, but in the outpatient history, there are very few cases of patients their vitiligo on face onset and spread because of intake too much vitamin C from the foods. More have vitiligo or their vitiligo on face spread because of intake too much medicine vitamin C. Such as long term intake daily health care fruit flavor vitamin C or orally intake or intravenous injected large dosage vitamin C to treat other diseases. There are also some hospitals prescribe the medicines contains vitamin C for facial vitiligo patients which cause their localized vitiligo reduced into sporadic vitiligo.

2. Avoid intake wines and seafood.

According to the outpatient record, there are many patients their vitiligo on face caused by over drink wines and over eat seafood. Generally speaking, over eating seafood or drinking wines for about one week will induce vitiligo. Some outpatients can clearly point out the causal relationship between drink wines or eat seafood and onset of their vitiligo on face. Some patients said every time they drink wines or eat seafood, their vitiligo will expand, part of facial vitiligo patients feel itch in their vitiligo lesion after drink wines but their vitiligo on face have not other changes. Some facial vitiligo patients work in food service industry or other industries hard to abstain the wines, their vitiligo on face often hard to control. The pathogenesis of it might have certain relationship of the drink wines might influence the endocrine function, damage the liver, influence the protein and zinc absorption. As for the seafood might induce allergic reaction, cause the immune system disorder.

3. Avoid eating too much foods contains phenol.

Some plant foods such as coffee, vegetables, fruits contains much phenol, it have cytotoxic effects to the melanocyte. Moreover, some patients with negative diet habits such as food bias, drink too much beverage and obesity children, there vitiligo on face often hard to control.

But all in all, food is only food, it can not replace the medicines and treatments. The facial vitiligo patients should receive systemic treatment in a specialist vitiligo hospital.
