Pigmentation and its Homeopathic Treatment

Facial discoloration is asymptomatic (without any symptoms) but is of great cosmetic concern, resulting in psychological stress. The most common reasons are pregnancy and exposure to sun. During pregnancy the hormone level can increase the body’s production of melanin, a pigment that tints the skin.

The result is chloasma (also known as melasma or the mask of pregnancy), irregular brown patches on t he forehead, nose, and checks. Women with darker complexions are more prone to developing chlosma. Other pigmented areas, such as birthmarks and freckles, may darken as well. One may also notice a brown line down the abdomen, from the belly button to the public bone, called linea nigra.
Most of these pigmented areas lighten again a few months after delivery, though they may not clear up completely. It is also common in pregnant women, those who are taking oral contraceptives (the “Pill”), and those taking hormone replacement therapy during menopause. Sun exposure is also a strong risk factor for melasma. It is particularly common in tropical climates.
Sepia (homeopathic medicine) is of utmost importance in treating discoloration occurring after pregnancy. In fact, it is apt for what one would call a post-pregnancy syndrome ? a brownish saddle like appearance spreading across the nose, backache, easily fatigued constitution, heightened mental sensitivity and irritability. Other medicines that are important in treatment are arsenic album and conium maculatum.
Sun-damaged skin or sunspots, medically called lentigos, and commonly referred to as liver spots, are a product of sun exposure. This exposure is cumulative and not directly related to sunburn on a specific day.
Homeopathy does not advocate the use of creams and ointments in skin disorders. It believes that skin disorders are a reflection of inside and need to be treated from within. Another strong opinion that homeopaths propagate is that any external application can lead to the suppression of the disease and result in a more serious systemic disorder. A well-prescribed homeopathic medicine not only takes care of hyperpigmentation but also treats as a whole and improves general health as well.
Homoeopathic medicines treat the hormonal imbalance and thus control the excessive production of melanin. The texture of the skin also improves. The occurrences of new patches reduce and ultimately stop. The skin slowly reverts to its normal condition without leaving any blemishes.
