Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a non-contagious, chronic skin condition where white patches develop on the skin due to depigmentation. The first white patches often occur on the hands, feet, arms, face, or lips. Other common areas for patches to appear are armpits (axilla), groin, navel, and genitals.

Eczema

Eczema is generally recognized as inflamed, non-contagious, reddened, rash-like, and itchy skin. Eczema can be detracting from the quality of sufferers experience. Socially exposed Eczema can affect work, personal and romantic relationships.

Chronic Skin Disorders Can Severely Impact Your Quality of Life (QoL)

Quality of Life (QoL) is described as what matters most to the patient. It encompasses the patient’s perception of their disease and its impact on their mental, physical, social, and romantic state. It represents how the patient feels about the quality, effectiveness, and aggressiveness of their treatment, as well as the quality of care they are receiving. Additionally, it includes whether the healthcare provider is sympathetic and understanding toward their needs.

Patients' quality of life may be more significantly affected when there is a physical component to their disease, such as intense itching, which can be consistently aggravating or painful. Even over a short period, constant physical aggravation can negatively affect a patient's perception of the world, their interactions, and their memories. Highly visible regions of diseased skin can become constant sources of anxiety, both due to unwanted attention and the patient's perception of that attention. Often in such cases, hope for effective treatment can seem impossible, instilling feelings of hopelessness, depression, or desperation.

However, there is hope, and effective treatments are available. Psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo are complex chronic skin conditions that require a multifaceted treatment approach. Many patients attempt to treat their disease on their own, from taking over-the-counter (OTC) medications to trying expensive herbal preparations purchased online. While the internet offers a comprehensive body of information for self-treatment, a licensed healthcare provider is ideally suited to diagnosing and formulating the best treatment approach. Licensed healthcare providers are also authorized to use devices and administer treatments, such as targeted UV phototherapy, which are not available for home use or self-administration.
