Hi, vitiligo responds to ultraviolet radiation A of sun rays. Best time is the period between 11 am ro 3 pm , as the concentration of UVA is more in this period. After application of neopsoralen lotion on the lesion , you expose the area to sun in stable position, you will get good result. In case you get irritation..redness, you stop to apply the lotion for few days, and take treatment to recover.Continue to take melanocyl tab , but two tab daily in morning. You can add levamisole tab, 50 mg daily at night. I hope, you will get good result fast.. Ok
