Homeopathy Medicine for Pigmentation Disorders
The pigment melanin, which gives skin its color, is made by specialized skin cells called melanocytes; when these cells are damaged or unable to produce enough melanin, skin color can be affected. Depending on the cause and course of the disorder, a lack of pigment can affect either a small area of the body or the entire body. Skin pigmentation disorders can be brought on by a variety of conditions.
TYPES OF PIGMENTATION DISORDERS :
AlbinismMultiple genetic defects prevent the body from producing or distributing melanin, which is a genetic disorder brought on by errors in the genes that give instructions for doing so.
In some cases, a person with albinism will have some color in their hair, skin, and eyes, but it will be lighter than normal. The primary symptom of albinism is a lack of color in the hair, skin, or eyes; this symptom can affect the entire body or just small patches of skin.
MelasmaMelasma, also known as chloasma or the mask of pregnancy, is a common disorder of skin pigmentation that typically affects women and is more likely to affect those with darker skin tones.
Melasma is characterized by brown or gray patches of skin discoloration that are darker than the natural skin tone, usually symmetrical on both sides of the face or body, and that appear in areas that are frequently exposed to sunlight.
VitiligoAlthough vitiligo has no negative health effects, it has been shown to cause psychological distress in those who have the condition. It is a chronic skin pigmentation disorder that affects roughly 1 to 2% of the world’s population, with cases equally distributed across all racial groups.
The primary sign of vitiligo is the total loss of skin pigment, which manifests as white patches on any part of the body.
