Normally, the color of hair, skin and eyes is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning. Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with darker skin. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious. It can be stressful or make you feel bad about yourself. Treatment for vitiligo may improve the appearance of the affected skin but does not cure the disease. In this article I will talk about two reason why this disease is difficulty to cure?
First, the pathogenesis of this disease is not clear so far, so the treatment of this disease is quite difficulty. The treatment of vitiligo is make the damaged melancytes from the epidermis layer restore. Because of that the onset of this disease is related to many various factors, and the pathogenesis is quite complicated. Some are still not very clear, after different methods treatment, the treatment effect is affected by many factors. And lack of the ideal treatment measures so the treatment is quite hard, so far it still hasn’t found the ideal medication and the methods that can treat vitiligo completely.
Second, they didn’t go to look for the dermatologist to diagnosis their disease, some of the vitiligo patients not diagnosis their disease, and just treat this disease blindly don’t care about the types and the pathogenesis of this disease, they just know that they need to use the cream after suffer from this disease. It causes this disease last for long time but not be cured. Some of the patients resistant to some drugs because of long term used some creams, or they are allergy to some creams and further cause some adverse side effects. So they lost the best treatment time to treat this disease.
