Leucoderma, also known as Vitiligo, is a distressing skin ailment. The word means ‘white skin.’ There is a gradual loss of pigment melanin from the skin layer, which results in white patches. These spots look unpleasant, particularly in persons with a dark tone. The condition does not cause any organic harm.
The disease is characterized by the formation of white patches on the skin. The problem usually starts with the small white spot, which soon spreads into patches. These patches are pale in the beginning but become whiter with the loss of melanin pigments. There is no pain, itching, etc but the afflicted persons feel social ‘stigma’ and mental agony as it is exposed to cosmetic effects. The disease has become the most complicated social skin disease in India and all over the world.
Even today, in the age of modern medicine, when many new effective treatments are available, these patients suffer social embarrassment, find it difficult to get married, have difficulty getting proper jobs and undergo untold misery. Depressed and frustrated, they tend to seek isolation. All this for a disease which causes no bodily harm except a change of colour and which can be treated effectively if help is sought at an early stage!
The Primary Causes of Leucoderma are mental worry; chronic or acute gastric ailments diminish hepatic functions, hereditary, typhoid, worm infestation, defective perspiration mechanism, and bum injuries.
Vitiligo Treatment in Ayurveda is compared with “SWITRAM” and is a disorder involving ‘Brajaka Pittam.’ Causes according to Ayurveda are Bad or unholy deeds in the past; improper social behavior like insulting teachers, saints and elders, etc, consumption of viruddha ahara, paniya; ahithakara and asatmya ahara (Consumption of Incompatible foods); In Females due to hormonal disturbances during Menopausal age groups.
Switram has included under ‘Rakthaja roga’ according to ‘Charaka,’ hence all ‘Raktha Shodana’ measures like Virechana (Purgation), Langhanam (Upavasa), Raktha Mokshana (Blood Letting) should be carried out according to the condition of the patient. First Samshodanam (Purificatory Procedures) and then Samshemana Chikitsa (Palliative Treatments) have to follow. Kushtahara Chikitsa has to be done.
