Actress Mamta Mohandas has disclosed that she has vitiligo, an autoimmune condition. Mamta also stated on Sunday that she is “losing colour” when posting to Instagram. She also uploaded a number of selfies. The actor grinned as she sat outside in the first image.
Mamta sat on a chair in the garden and drank something from a cup. She chose a black outfit consisting of a jacket, tights, and a black T-shirt. She wrote as her caption: “I embrace you now more than ever, dear (sun emoji). Spotted, I’m starting to fade. Every morning, I get up even before you do to watch you shine your first ray through the cloud.”
Give me whatever you’ve got, Mamta said, “For by your grace, I will be obliged from now on and forever.” Additionally, she used the hashtags “colour,” “autoimmune disease,” “autoimmune,” “vitiligo,” “Sunday,” “spotlight,” “imperfection,” “embrace the journey,” “healing,” and “heal yourself.” Niraamaya Retreats Samroha in Kerala is what Mamta geotagged as the location.
What is vitiligo?
A disorder called vitiligo (pronounced “vit-ih-LIE-go”) results in patches of skin losing their pigment. With time, the discoloured spots typically enlarge. Any portion of the body’s skin might be impacted by the illness. The tongue and hair can both be impacted by it.
Patchy loss of skin color, which usually first appears on the hands, face, and areas around body openings and the genitals. Premature whitening or graying of the hair on your scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows or beard. Loss of color in the tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose.
When melanin, the pigment that gives your skin, hair, and eyes colour, stops produced by pigment-producing cells called melanocytes, it results in vitiligo. The affected skin patches became lighter or white. The precise reason why these pigment cells malfunction or degenerate is unknown. It might be connected to:
An immune system condition (autoimmune condition), family background (heredity)
A catalyst, such as anxiety, a severe sunburn, or skin damage from coming into contact with chemicals.
