Hi there.
If vitiligo & if they have turned pink, then you are on the track for regaining the lost colour..nothing to worry about. This cannot be addressed online by a doctor perfectly. It has to be seen by a dermatologist on the ground & taken further. Please do visit one. Cheers & Good Luck!

:) Apologies mate as am in India. Might i suggest the yellow pages & am certain in California, you will come across quite a few dermatologists...home to the stars & all :) However, if economics in question, may i recommend a concept called medical tourism wherin you fly to a country like India (Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore) or Singapore (Far East) & get your work done for some 1/4 or 1/3 the cost with a holiday to boot! All the best whatever option you choose & warm regds.
