Vitiligo is not an infectious disease and cannot be transmitted to others.
Vitiligo is a skin disease that is mainly caused by the disappearance or reduction of melanin in the body.
It is a discoloration change caused by local skin melanin metabolism disorders. It does not have pathogens, so it is not contagious.
Infectious diseases refer to diseases in which the source of infection (human or other hosts) carries pathogens and infects susceptible persons through transmission routes.
Vitiligo is a non-infectious disease, and there is no source of infection, so naturally, there is no infection.
Studies in recent years have suggested that vitiligo is related to the following factors:
1.Genetics: Vitiligo can appear in twins and families.
Vitiligo is a kind of primary skin disease, which makes vitiligo has certain limitations. Some related studies show that vitiligo has a certain relationship with genetic factors, which belongs to skin depigmentation disease.
2. Autoimmune theory: Vitiligo can be combined with autoimmune diseases, such as thyroid disease, diabetes, and chronic adrenal insufficiency.
3. Mental and neurochemical theory: Most patients have trauma, excessive tension, depression, or depression during the onset or development of skin lesions.
4. The theory of melanocyte self-destruction: Antibodies and T lymphocytes can be produced in patients with vitiligo, indicating that the immune response may cause melanocytes to be destroyed.
In general, vitiligo is not contagious. Therefore, patients with vitiligo must maintain a good attitude, deal with things in life calmly, and do not give themselves too much mental stress.
Also, we must avoid the influence of external factors on ourselves, avoid direct sunlight to the skin, develop a good lifestyle, create a good working environment, and keep the room air fresh.
