Causes Of White Spots On Legs And How To Get Rid Of Them

Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis is a skin disorder that causes white spots on circular or oval legs. It's more common in women than in men, and it's more visible in darkly pigmented races than on other skin types. Although the specs aren't a symptom of any health issues, they can be frightening, especially if they show in huge numbers. Here are the causes of this disease.

CAUSES

° The source of the eruption is unknown, however, sun exposure could be a factor. The number of melanocytes and the number of melanin granules in the afflicted epidermis are both reduced histologically.

° Another aspect is age. It can appear in young women, however, it is most common in people over the age of 40.

° Trauma and genetics can play a role in the development of white spots.

PREVENTION AND TREATMENT

° The first step in preventing it is to avoid excessive sun exposure or to constantly apply sunscreen.

° Laser therapy or calcineurin inhibitors may be used. Before proceeding with the treatment, you should consult with your doctor.

° Wear garments that will keep your skin covered.

° To avoid aggravating pigmentation and skin irritation, use caution while using at-home therapies like lime juice.

Treatment Options Include;

° TOPICAL RETINOIDS.

° CHEMICAL PEELING.

° SUPERFICIAL DERMABRASION
