Many vitiligo patients do not know how to do self health care themselves, they can not take proper measures in sudden condition and finally cause their disease worsen. So what vitiligo patients should do self health care to prevent this happen? In this article, I’d like to make a brief introduction about this.

Self health care one: vitiligo patients should adjust their mental state, keep good mood state, avoid anxious, sadness, angry and other negative emotions, balance the rest and work, keep a good life habit, avoid the disorder of their biological clock and endocrine disorder.

Self health care four: vitiligo patients must set up confidence to receive normal treatment. They first need to lay down the burden, release their mental pressure, know that vitiligo is a noninfectious disease, have no influence to their internal organs. If the vitiligo on the early state or have vitiligo not very long time with small skin lesion area, generally speaking it is can be cured, so you’d better try to treat it earlier, but if you delayed it, the treatment difficulty must increased with the time goes by.

Vitiligo patients should eat more foods rich in vitamin C and trace elements such as nuts includes walnuts, peanuts, sunflower seeds, lotus seeds, pine nuts, watermelon seeds, apricot kernel and so on. Vitiligo patients also need to eat more black sesame, beans, bean products, animal livers and so on. They also need to eat more foods rich in vitamin B, avoid intake too much vitamin C, avoid to eat or eat less foods rich in vitamin C such as tomatoes, oranges, apples, citrus, kiwifruits, jujubes and so on.
