Medication To Treat Vitiligo?
Thank you for the question.
Vitiligo is a disorder in which skin appears whitish due to death or stop functioning cells that produce melanin (the pigment that regulates skin color). The originator of this certainly is not yet known. However, many experts suspect this condition occurs due to heredity, impaired immunity, exposure to sunlight, stress, as well as certain chemical substances.
Although not dangerous and also not life threatening, vitiligo can greatly reduce the confidence of sufferers, and increase the risk of sufferers to experience sunburn (burns due to sun exposure) and skin cancer. Therefore, in order not to become more widespread, this condition needs to be treated, such as by administering anti-inflammatory drugs, immunomodulators, light therapy, and even more invasive measures such as skin grafting, micropigmentation, and so on.
Medications that you usually use include immunomodulators which are given by doctors to vitiligo sufferers. If this drug is difficult to obtain, you should not arbitrarily switch to another drug. Better, you consult with your doctor or dermatologist who used to treat you to find the best alternative solution so that your complaints are resolved.
Hope this helps ...
