Thanks for writing to us.
To treat lip vitiligo initially one should begin with topical medicines like steroids, tacrolimus, placentrex, growth factors, psoralens etc. If these medicines do not help then one may try surgical procedures like melanocyte transfer or lip tattooing.
Please meet a wualified dermatologist nearby to start your treatment.
Hope this helped.
Take care
