Vitiligo Treatment In Bathinda
Vitiligo is a chronic skin disorder that causes areas of skin to lose colour. It presents as depigmented (white) patches. Exposed body sites, such as the face, elbows, knees, hands and feet, are often involved, resulting in significant cosmetic concerns. It causes severe cosmetic distress, particularly in darkly pigmented skins and is also associated with a great social stigma. It has a profound psychological impact and greatly affects the quality of life. In addition, the depigmented skin becomes photosensitive on the exposed areas of the skin, leading to redness and burning on sun exposure. Vitiligo is usually treated with creams and tablets, or by phototherapy.
Phototherapy in various methods used either to achieve immuno modulation or cell stimulation. We don’t prefer photo sensitisers along with vitiligo phototherapy treatment. We use mainly Narrow Band UV B rays either controlled by dosimetry or duration.
Most of the patients worry about skin cancer risk with this treatment. However, we use short dose/ duration exposure and most vitiligo patients have inverse relation with malignant melanoma (less chances of cancer ). Tanning also minimal and temporary. It is important use sunscreens after exposure.
