Symptoms of Leucoderma/Vitiligo

Symptoms of Leucoderma/Vitiligo

The best symptom of leucoderma is appearance of white patches on the skin. The whiteness usually begins with small brownish spots which either increase or decrease in size gradually. With passage of time more such spots appear in the area and merge with each other giving a look of a patch. Apart from this there are a few other noticeable symptoms too like:

  • Alopecia or loss of hair
  • Sensitivity towards cold
  • Skin irritation
  • Premature greying of hair
  • Hair on the affected area getting discoloured and becoming white. For example, if the patient is experiencing growth of white patches on their arms, it is possible that the hair growing on the arms will turn white too.
  • In some cases patients lose colour inside the mouth
  • Discolouration of eyes

No matter what be the cause of occurrence of leucoderma the course of the disease is certain. You might ask that why only a particular part of the body is affected from de-pigmentation and not the entire body as pigments are present all over the body? Well, this is one of such many questions related to leucoderma which remains unanswered.

Sometimes regular or general white patches are mistake to be leucoderma patches. So, how to distinguish them and confirm yourself? Make the following observations:

  • If the white patches have a darker outline than the skin colour, you can confirm its cause to be leucoderma
  • If it is irregular in appearance
  • Keep an eye on it, if it gradually increases in size you can call it leucoderma
  • The patch will appear milky white when put under ultraviolet light.
