Natural Remedies for Leucoderma

Menhdi seeds
Leucoderma represents a particular type of skin disease, which causes decrease in skin pigmentation. And as a result white patches appears over the skin, another term used for leucoderma is Vitiligo. It affects certain parts of the body instead of whole body such as in scalp, lips, hands, arms, face, and feet. Lecoderma or vitiligo may caused by many  factors like long time sun exposure, certain injuries  mental stress, cuts on body and chronic disease like jaundice.

Leucoderma is not a disease, which spreads from one person to another. Main symptom to acknowledge leucoderma is the appearance of white, small or big white patches on the affected person’s body. Available medications for treating leucoderma are not very effective and may treat leucoderma only partially. Additionally, few natural remedies you may find effective for treatment of Leucoderma but you should ask your doctor before using any home remedies.

Natural Remedies for Leucoderma

Heena or Menhdi seeds
 Heena considered an effective remedy to treat leucoderma, it may not recognized widely but it is found  effective for minimizing white patches of leucoderma. In order to use menhdi first take some menhdi seeds  and dry them completely. When the seeds fully dried make powder of by meshing these seeds. Now make  paste with the meshed seeds after adding proportionate amount of mustered oil. Use this paste regularly by  applying over the affected skin every morning and leave it to dry for 1-2 hours and then go for a bath, this will help you in reducing the white patches.

Mustered Oil
Mustered oil is a regular home based item proved very effective in the treatment of leucoderma. Mustered oil contains medicinal properties such as anti-fungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory; in addition, it is a natural germ killer and prevents toxicities as well. Direct application of mustered oil over the affected area and leaving it for 1-2 hours is the way usually adopted to use mustered oil for treating leucoderma. Another way to use mustered oil in treating leucoderma is by making paste of mustered oil added with either of garlic,
ginger, basil extracts, turmeric or menhdi and applying two times per day over the affected area and then take bath to feel better.

Red Clay
Red Clay is a widely practiced remedy to treat leucoderma or vitiligo, People during the older times used red clay often. Red clay usually found near the water bodies and it contains copper in it. Copper also considered useful for decreasing the effect of leucoderma, people suffering from leucoderma often advised to drink water from copper bowl or copper glass. Best method to use red clay in leucoderma is by making a paste with clay and adding few drops of ginger juice or you can even add mustered oil into it as well. Apply the paste similarly as pervious two methods for 1-2 hr and then take bath. You will notice the patches of leucoderma slowly fading away.

Garlic or Ginger
I have mentioned two names here because both of these homes based items proven effective against leucoderma. There are number of medicinal capabilities contained by both ginger and garlic making them useful for treating a number of skin infections. The medicinal properties found on garlic as well as ginger includes antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anti- inflammatory that provides an effective counter measure for treating skin and other body problems including leucoderma as well. Either you can apply garlic or ginger directly over the affected area or you can add some mustered oil to make paste for applying over the patched skin. Sit on an open area to expose affected skin in mild sunrays, remain there for 30-40 minutes and then take bath.

Peanut may prove effective for treating leucoderma as it contains many useful vitamins and minerals; in addition, it contains zinc, copper, magnesium and potassium also that makes it useful for leucoderma. Regular use of peanuts is good in case of leucoderma. For using peanuts, make paste of it by adding few drops of almond oil or simply water and apply over the patched portion of the skin to heal leucoderma gradually.
