Defects in the enzyme tyrosinase, Burn injury, Chronic dysentery, Hyperthyroidism peripheric anemia, Diabetes mellitus, Addison Disease, Broad-spectrum antibiotics used. Heredity is also a known factor.

Ayurvedic approach for leukoderma:

Ayurvedic medicines have shown very encouraging results in most cases of leukoderma. Since it provides comprehensive treatment, it goes to the root of the problem by helping build immunity and eventually brings the pigmented patch back to normal skin color. Ayurveda considers leukoderma to be the local manifestation of system disturbances. Leucoderma is a condition that requires an in-depth study of the individual case and only constitutional Ayurvedic treatment can help. The duration and success of the treatment depend on the extent of the patch and the duration of the disease. Larger patches require more days while smaller spots emerge faster. Treating leukoderma is a lengthy process and may require a year or more to heal completely. Certain Ayurvedic medicines stimulate melanocyte function which is capable of producing the body's own normal melanin pigment. The skin starts to turn pink after starting treatment, then turns brown and indigestion gradually begins. As Ayurvedic considers it from within, when constitutional treatment is satisfactorily completed, it is unlikely that the patch reappears in comparison to treatment with traditional medicines. Ayush approved Ayurvedic medicines, cost-effective, and easy to use with no side effects. Self-care measures for leukoderma with Ayurvedic treatment.
