More than 1 lakh cases of vitiligo are reported in India every year. Vitiligo can occur at any age, but it is usually seen more before 30. These are of many types. In some people, these white spots appear in one part of the body. At the same time, in some patients, these white spots gradually spread throughout the body. This disease is curable. There are many assumptions about this, due to which the patients of vitiligo also have to face mental stress. That is why today we are telling you the real truth of these beliefs.
Eating fish and milk together causes white spots
No, that’s not true at all. There is no study of any kind about this, which links white spots on the body and fish-milk together. Experts say that it is an autoimmune disorder. Which is not affected by the combination of food. Let us tell you that autoimmune is the condition when the body’s immune system starts attacking the healthy cells of the body.
Vitiligo is spread by touching
There is no study of any kind regarding this. Experts say that the disease of vitiligo is not contagious. In such a situation, this disease does not spread by touching, eating, drinking, touching, blood or sex of the affected patients.
Using too much soap causes white spots
This notion is also completely wrong. As we also mentioned that vitiligo is an autoimmune disease. It does not involve any external elements.
These white spots are incurable
White spots on the body are not infectious as well as fatal. This disease is completely curable. Treatment of white spots may bring back the color of the affected skin.
What is the real reason for having Vitiligo
- a disorder of the immune system
- Family history (heredity)
- severe sunburn
- skin trauma
Do not make the mistake of making people suffering from vitiligo feel neglected by getting confused by these notions.
