Leucoderma - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment of Vitiligo
Leucoderma is also known as vitiligo. It is a distressing skin condition. The word Leucoderma means the white skin. There is a gradual loss of the pigment melanin from the skin layers which results in white patches. The white patches on the skin look ugly. Especially in those persons who has dark skin or complexion. However, this condition does not cause any organic harm. Leucoderma is a fairly common disorder and it affects one per cent or more of the world’s population. The incidence is a little higher in India. The disorder can occur at any age in either sex in normal skin. It is, however, more common in women than men. The most affected areas are the hands, the neck, the back and the wrist in that order. It is not an infectious disease. This can occur because of stress and emotional disturbances. This disease should be cured as soon as it is detected, but it can not be cured hundred percent.
