Mucosa vitiligo can occur separately, most appear on glans penis, mouth and lips, tongue, edge of the eyes and etc. Sometimes the vitiligo can occurred in the mucosa first and then expand to other parts. Different vitiligo should adopt different treatments, so learn about the common symptoms of mucosa vitiligo can help to treat it and prevent this type vitiligo expand to other areas. So in this article, I’d like to talk about the symptoms and treatments of mucaso vitiligo.

The specialists in Beijing CASU Vitiligo Hospital indicates the vitiligo on mucosa sites such as mouth, lips, glans penis, vagina, anus and etc. The melanin in the skin not only exist in the epidermis, it also exist in hair follicle. Although many patients their melanin pigment synthesis in the epidermis was destroyed but there hair did not damaged, the melanocyte in the hairs are the important source of melanocyte in the vitiligo treatment. But because the mucosa areas have no hairs, so generally speaking, the vitiligo on the mucosa areas have longer treatment course than other sites.

Because the specialty of these areas, the vitiligo treatment difficulty on these mucosa areas are quite large, so how many treatments for these areas?

1. Medication treatment: although externally applied medicines have poorer treatment effects, but adopt the injection can obviously increase the treatment effects. On one hand the patients can increase their physique condition and improve their qi and blood circulation by orally take medicines.
