Vitiligo On Thighs, Knees, Legs, Feet and Toes

Vitiligo On Thighs, Knees, Legs, Feet and ToesVitiligo is a disease of skin pigments called melanin. It is a disease where there is a loss of skin pigment or color, which could be due to various reasons. Vitiligo affects about 2% of world population and close to 8% of Indian and Mexican population. Vitiligo is not a serious disease, medically speaking. It has more social significance than medical importance, as it does not cause any major harm to the body. Cosmetically and personally, it can affect lives of the suffers especially in those society, where color of skin is given importance; specially among brown and dark skin people.

In simple words, vitiligo is caused by one or two of the following processes:
1. Melanin cell destruction, leading to loss of color on skin, leading to white patches of vitiligo.
2. Defective process of melanin formation, hence, no skin color formation。
Skin is the largest organ in the body. Vitiligo is one of the most common skin diseases affecting over 2% world populations and 8% of the Indians.
Vitiligo affection on the skin of legs, thighs, legs, knees, feet and toes is common.
Scattered and small patches on these parts are relatively easy to treat. Large patches of vitiligo are always difficult to treat. Those affecting bony areas such as knees, ankles are difficult to repigment.
If someone has vitiligo on both sides of legs, knees, ankles, feet or toes; it is difficult to cure them. Vitiligo on toes on both sides is better controlled than cured.
If someone has vitiligo on shins on both sides, it is difficult to bring color. Especially, if you find gray hair on those vitiligo spots, it may not be possible to bring color and retain it.
If someone has vitiligo on tips of the toes (and finger tips), in the early stage, one should work on keeping this variety under control.
