Also called as Sveta Kushtha in Indian language or Vitiligo in medical science, Leucoderma is a condition relevant to the skin. In this condition, the process of de-pigmentation of the skin, there is noticeable change in the color of the skin that changes to white from its natural color. In simple words, leucoderma is a skin condition under which the skin starts losing its natural color and becomes white in color. It is due to reduced production of skin pigment called as melanin which is produced by the skin cells called as melanocytes. It is worth noting that the skin gets its natural color only due to this pigment. In the absence or reduced production of this pigment of the skin, the skin loses its natural color and starts turning white in color. In the beginning, there may be small patches of the white colored skin that may spread and take the form of bigger skin patches.
The production of melanin is reduced or affected adversely due to malfunctioning of the melanocytes. This in turn leads to the condition called as leucoderma. The white skin patches may be found on the entire body irrespective of their location. People of both the genders can get equally affected by it. At the same time, people of all ages including, children, adults and elderly are prone to suffer from this skin condition.
Apart from health relevant issues related to the skin, leucoderma has an adverse effect on the social aspect of a person’s life. It is due to the reason that due to white patches on the skin, the outer looks of a person are adversely affected due to which the concerned person may suffer from low self-esteem and embarrassment in social circle.
