Vitiligo: the psychological repercussions

We can talk about disability when we suffer from vitiligo. An aesthetic handicap that can lead to real psychological suffering. We sometimes quote the case of this baker, shunned by her clients, because she had vitiligo in her hands.

But, one can think of all these young people (and especially young girls), who, towards twenty, begin to develop the disease, and the immense complexes which go with it. Until fear all social life. To dive into depression.

It is therefore important, when the disease appears, to be able to talk about it. Associations exist (French association of vitiligo: 01 45 26 15 55). Do not hesitate to ask their address to the general practitioner.

And, you should know that, even if treatments against vitiligo do not always work, answers can be provided by beauticians. The correctors of complexion are effective. And then, we must keep hope: a small reserve of melanin can be hidden somewhere.
