Vitiligo patients with blood and white spots due to the lack of certain trace metals, and reduce the activity of tyrosinase in vivo, affecting the synthesis of melanin metabolism, resulting in lesions. Therefore, patients should eat more foods containing copper, zinc, iron and other metal elements, so that tyrosinase activity, and then to accelerate the synthesis of melanin.
Usually eat some food containing tyrosine and minerals, meat (cattle, rabbit, pig meat), animal liver, egg (egg, duck's egg, quail egg etc.), milk (milk, yogurt), vegetables (fresh vegetables, radish, eggplant, bamboo shoots, edible fungus, kelp, beans (soybeans) peas, mung bean and bean products), peanut, black sesame, walnut, raisins, snails, clams and other shellfish.
Basic taboo food:
(1) eat onions, garlic, fish, shrimp, lamb, bamboo shoots, pickled vegetables, pepper, wine. Should not eat spinach, spinach contains a large number of oxalic acid, easy to cause itching.
(2) eat less food containing vitamin C and more. Vitamin C can reduce the level of serum copper and serum copper oxidase, affect the activity of tyrosinase, interfere with the synthesis of melanin in the skin.
(3) vitiligo patients should not eat more. Cherry contains rich vitamin C, vitamin C in the metabolism of melanin, can make the formation of melanin is interrupted, aggravating the condition of vitiligo.
Vitiligo occurs because of genetic, immune, mental and other factors, resulting in local skin and hair follicle melanin synthesis obstacles. The sun's ultraviolet rays can promote the metabolism of melanin, so appropriate to the sun, the melanocytes can be transferred to the cortex, so that the skin deepened, which is conducive to the treatment of vitiligo. However, in the hot summer, the sun's ultraviolet rays can inhibit the metabolism of melanin, is not conducive to the synthesis of melanin, so the summer should avoid sun exposure.
Other matters needing attention:
(1) mental factors: anxiety, tension, unpleasant life events can stimulate the disease, so patients should be cheerful, be like mind and world view.
(2) the environment: in particular the wet shelter, rain, wading, cold and so may induce vitiligo, this is attention.
(3) infection: trauma, frostbite, burns are likely to lead to the occurrence or development of vitiligo, must pay attention to.
