Vitiligo / Leucoderma / White Patches

Homeopathic treatment

According to homoeopathic philosophy leucoderma or vitiligo is not just a skin disease but it is the external manifestation of the internal derangement of the body. Thus, the treatment in homeopathy is aimed at curing this internal problem because only this would provide permanent relief from white patches. The patient is thus evaluated from different angles – physical, emotional, mental and familial. Also important is life situation prevailing when the problem started.

There are 33 remedies in homeopathy for leucoderma or vitiligo or white patches. Arsenic sulph falvus, Arsenic album, Baryta muriaticum and Baryta carbonicum are few of them. A professionally qualified and experienced doctor chooses the right one for a particular patient by carefully assessing his or her symptoms. This is very important because only the well-selected medicine would cure the patient.

Also it is a chronic disease and may take considerable time to cure even with the best selected homeopathic remedy. The patient should keep this in mind and should be ready to cooperate with their physician.

Leucoderma or vitiligo is treatable in homeopathy while other treatments including sun exposure, ultraviolet radiation and external applications only provide temporary relief. Also allopathic treatment is associated with side effects like liver damage, skin allergy, nausea, cataract and other eye problems. The well-selected homeopathic remedies are without any side effects.

Many a times vitiligo or lecuderma is associated with stress, thyroid dysfunction, pernicious anemia, Addison's disease, alopecia areata (bald patches) and intestinal disorders. With homeopathy the above conditions are also dealt with concurrently.

Also I have observed that the patients recover faster if nonvegetarian food, milk, milk products and foods containing artificial colors and flavours are restricted.

What is vitiligo (leucoderma, white patches)

Vitiligo, which is often called as leucoderma, is a disorder where the skin loses its color in patches of irregular shapes and sizes.

This is a pigmentation disorder which means that melanocytes (the pigment-producing cells) in the skin get destroyed which results in the shortage of melanin and thus development of white patches on the skin. The hair on the affected part may also lose their color and turn grey.

It is not a contagious disease and the patient should not be trated as untouchable.


There are many theories:

  • Vitiligo resembles an autoimmune disorder. The pigment i.e. melanin (the matter that gives colour to our skin) producing cells of the skin are destroyed by the body's own antibodies (defense mechanism).
  • It usually runs in families.
  • Chemicals such as phenol and catechol which are used in disinfactants, dying and tanning are related to increased predisposition to vitiligo.
  • Emotional and physical stress is seen as a mojor contributor. It is commonly seen that vitiligo is related to a stress event in the patient's life.


  • White patches on skin which are irregelar in shape and size.
  • Usually the parts which are exposed to light are affected like face, neck, hands, arms and so on.
  • Also, vitiligo may be seen on genitals, breast and legs.
  • In some patients the hair may also turn grey on the affected part.
  • Sometimes the spread of vitiligo may stop after the first patch and sometimes these patches spread very fast.

Home remedy

Though it is recommended to consult a professional homeopath for vitiligo, the patient may try exposing the affected are to sunlight while the normal skin is protected with a sunscreen. The sun rays has ultraviolet readiation which may promote repigmentation.

*Vitiligo started about 5 years ago and affected both upper and lower limbs; it is scattered and size is 1-4 cm. There is no involvement of fingers or toes. I have tried steriod treatment, narrow band PUVA, but there is not much improvement.

After 1 month of treatment: Hi Dr. Rohit thanks for asking my progress; acutally I was about to write to you but I was so busy in the last few days. I did my best to be complaint with the medicines; I missed them, may be 2 times but not more.

I did not expect much change but last week I noticed that my skin has becomes slightly tanned in the areas of hypopigmentation; few spot of pigmentation here and there. Best regards.

After 2 months of treatment: Hello doctor Rohit, the hypopigmented areas are slightly getting darker. Thanks.

After 3 months of treatment: I believe I am responding to the remedies; the whitish spots getting darker gradually and I should say I am compliant in taking remedies on 5-6 days per week. Thanks again.

Now on my elbows is only where the spots are like 4 inches in size. If i act on this now it will be good to take care and get the color to return. Most of these spots are present as of less than 1-2 yrs. I have had a diet where foods have may effected the spread on skin.
