Answered by Dr. Hardik Sanghvi 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
No it is not due to blood transfusion.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.

Vitiligo/ leukoderma is not caused by blood transfusion. Some auto immune cause can leads to these. But blood transfusion is not considered as a cause of vitiligo/ leukoderma.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.

How do we access the food that the body will accept easily? Are there any best sources to restore the health of skin. I do have some small areas of vitilogo / Leukoderma on the body in the foot region. How do I take care of this through my diet.

Good evening sir,
I am a 26yr old/female with no history of significant skin problems. My mother has leucoderma (generalised) which started developing at the age of 27. There is no other family history of leucoderma/vitiligo and i was told that it is sometimes hereditary. Of late, i have noticed that fresh scars that usually turn hyperpigmented (small burns, mosquito bites) are instead turning hypopigmented. they do, however, return to normal colour after a period of time. should i be concerned, and is there any preventive treatment?
Thank you for your time.
