Hi Friends,

All the pictures below have one thing in common:  The oxidation caused by free oxygen radicals

Despite the effects are noticeable on the surface (skin), the damage starts usually from inside the body.

So, treating this imbalance is the very first thing to be done to fight vitiligo.

          • I'm currently using UVB therapy for Vitiligo and was thinking about taking Selenium due to it's antioxidant properties. However, it also blocks UV radiation which may not be effective for treatments.

            Any thoughts?

            • Go for it.

              Selenium has protective effects against UV radiation-induced damage. However, UVB narrow band therapy does not cause any damage, if properly done.

              UVB-NB is just a small range of the UV spectrum.

  • how we can stop oxidizing

    • Many ways.

      Some examples below:

      -From inside: taking anti-oxidant pills and/or some kinds of food (broccoli, onion, etc).

      -From outside: some creams like pseudocatalase and/or vitiskin.
