Unconventional treatment for vitiligo
Hi, I am a 30 years old woman. I am a researcher in profession. Recently I have got white pigmentation on my left hand near the thumb. I have noticed that the area is spreading gradually. I haven't experienced any pain or itching on that portion. I have searched in internet and came to know that this is known as vitiligo and I should consult a dermatologist. I have repulsion for allopathy medicines. I know if I am going for consultation, I will be given some drugs. I wont take them. Please suggest me some unconventional treatment for vitiligo.
@Bubun Some vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes have been reported to restore skin color in people who have vitiligo.
Most have not been studied, so there is no evidence to support these treatments and no knowledge of possible side effects.
Ginkgo biloba, an herb, has been studied in a clinical trial. Results from this trial indicate that the herb may restore skin color and stop vitiligo from worsening.
In the ginkgo biloba trial, 10 patients given ginkgo biloba had noticeable or complete return of skin color. Two patients taking the placebo (contains no active ingredient) also had noticeable or complete return of skin color.
Because some patients taking the placebo regained their skin color, more study is needed.
