This problem is commonly found now a days.Well its related with rakta+mada+mamsagat vikruti.Now the main cause according to my experience is also worms,wrong food and a lot of drinking water habit,aneedra,mental pressure on child's mind and many other causes which are be distinguished after nadi pariksha.Ayurveda has certainly good results in such cases also.Proper diagnosis is required.

welcome to Healthcaremagic
Actually Vitiligo is loss of pigment of skin and it is autoimmune disease. According to the principle of Ayurveda this disease is known as 'shivitr' or 'kilaas' and it is Pitta disease. so the way of treatment the disease in Ayurveda is to maintain Imbalance of Bhrajaka Pitta that colors the skin and can be compared to melanin using the Ayurvedic medicine and Purification process called Panchakarma. Kerala is the best place for Ayurveda but principle of Ayurveda practice and treatment is everywhere same. Ayurveda compromise two line of treatment bodily purification and herbal medicine. after them only there is complete treatment. So visit the nearest Ayurveda specialist and follow accordingly. It depend upon the case how severe is the case. As it is autoimmune disorder Ayurveda medicine had to work in the immune system also. Dont worry it takes time and it is curable in Ayurveda system..
Take care
