In medical terms, white patches on skin are known as vitiligo. This type of patches can appear on different body parts such as hands, feet, arms, legs, face, lips, and around eyes and mouth. The main cause behind this skin problem is lack of the functioning melanin producing skin cells. Other reasons are auto-immune disorder in the body, deficiency of vitamin B12, hyper activity of the thyroid glands, excessive stress, hereditary and increased exposure to sunrays.

White patches on the skin can be unpleasant to look at. But, there is nothing to worry about as there are treatments available to deal with this kind of skin problem. There are even some effective natural remedies that you can easily try at home.

Here are top 10 ways to get rid of White Patches on Skin.

1. Radish Seeds

One of the best known home cures for white spots disorder is radish seeds. Take about 25 grams of radish seeds and then grind them to make a coarse powder. Now to this powdered radish seeds add two teaspoons of vinegar and mix it properly. Apply this paste on the affected area for half an hour and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. In case radish seeds are not available, then you can use radish leaves. Take few radish leaves and grind them to form a thick paste and then add some white vinegar. Leave this paste aside in room temperature for overnight. Next morning apply this paste over the affected area and leave it on the skin for one to two hours. When this remedy is followed daily you can notice improvement in your skin color within a month.

2. Turmeric

Turmeric is another ingredient that can be used to get rid of white patches on the skin. When a mixture of turmeric and mustard oil is externally applied on the affected area, it boosts the immune system. Take five teaspoons of turmeric powder and mix it with 250 milliliters of mustard oil and apply this paste to discolored areas of skin twice daily. For effective outcome, you must follow this remedy for almost a year. Another option is to make a paste of turmeric and Neem leaves and apply it on the affected area. The antiseptic property of this mixture will help to deal with this kind of skin problem if the reason behind the problem is some kind of infection.

3. Cabbage

Cabbage juice can also be used to cure white spots on skin in a very effective manner. Extract some cabbage juice by crushing some fresh cabbage leaves. Now apply this juice on the affected area and leave for around ten minutes before rinsing the area with lukewarm water. Another option is to pierce a few cabbage leaves with the help of a fork and put the leaves directly on the white spots. You can also boil some cabbage leaves in water and use the water to wash the affected skin area. It is also a good idea to increase the intake of cabbage in your diet.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar

The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar can destroy the fungi and bacteria that causes white patches on the skin. Make a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water and use this mixture to wash the affected skin area twice a day. This will help to keep the area clean and free of bacteria and fungi. If this remedy is followed daily for one month, the white spots will start changing the color and the problem will disappear soon. At the same time you can also include apple cider vinegar in cooking.

5. Ginger

Take some fresh ginger and crush it to extract the juice. Now mix this ginger juice with lemon juice and water and consume it twice daily and soon there will be improvement in the skin condition. At the same time you can even rub a small piece of ginger or ginger paste on the white spots for a few minutes. You can prepare a mixture of red clay and ginger juice taken in equal amounts. Apply the mixture over the skin spots, leave it for about twenty minutes, and wash it off with water.

6. Figs

Figs have some essential properties that can heal white patches. Try to consume lots of figs in the raw form daily for a month or two to get rid of the problem of white spots and patches on the skin. This will help to purify the blood and improve its circulation. Else you can roast the figs and powder them and add some water to it to make a thick paste. Now apply this paste on the white patches on the skin and leave it for a few minutes before rinsing the area with clean water. Along with figs, experts also recommend to regularly consume walnuts to improve the white dry spots on the skin. You can also make a paste of walnut powder and water and apply it over the affected parts of the skin.

Ive been told if u scrath it and scrath somewhere elses it will gradually spred and it has and also to qvoid sun light.. also that there is 5 or somthing differnt types of vitiligo. ??? What can I do and which home remedie.. should I choose..

    Reply
    • Sorry Sha…there is only one type of vitiligo, is the one we have. there is no cure – no home remedies…sorry to say this..it is harsh but the truth. I have accepted it – i had it since I was 18 years old. I have tried all sort of stuff…from putting brake fluid on it, etc and stopped eating stuff which I was told, i also did ayurvedic medicine but nothing helped. maybe you can go and test yourself for lack of B12 vitamin in your body.

  42. Hello, I think my comment didnt go through or it was deleted before posted. I have vitiligo for the past 40 years or so. I have tried all remedies but nothing worked. So probably the tips above are for other white patches arising out of fungus or other skin diseases rather than vitiligo. Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease like Diabetes and has no cure. I would suggest those with vitiligo should go for B12 vit blood test. that is normally the cause. thanks…please do not delete this post – let people know the truth about vitiligo. Thanks
