User :   Hi, I have a white patch on the lower side of my eye which is around the size of a dime. I got this from applying a green tea facial mask ten months ago and after that I had a tingling feeling in that area and so it left a white patch. What should I do to get rid of it? It seems to be spreading in size lately.

Doctor :   which will get rid of it
Doctor :   but before you do that
Doctor :   i want you to do the following
Doctor :   Turmeric is also very effective in healing the Leucoderma. Add about 500 grams of turmeric in eight liters of water and soak it for some time. Then keep this turmeric solution for boiling and boil it for long time. Boil it till the time it reduces to one liter of water solution. Allow it to cool and strain it. Then add half-liter mustard oil in this solution and apply this mixture over the affected body parts. Applying this mixture twice in a day over the patches will reduce the patches in about three months.
Doctor :   its completely safe
Doctor :   Walnuts and figs are also very effective in curing Leucoderma. Hence increase your daily intake of walnuts and figs.
Doctor :   Crush some ginger leaves and apply the juices over the white patches. This will reduce the white patches and make them disappear.
Doctor :   avoid tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages, all condiments and highly- flavoured dishes, sugar, white flour products, denatured cereals like polished rice and pearled barley, and tinned or bottled foods.
Doctor :   that will stop the spread and cure it
Doctor :   any rapid spread if you notice needs to be shown to a dermatologist
Doctor :   and then you have the medical options i have told you
