hi, thanks for your query, Most of the time, only topical treatments are suggested by doctors for skin disorders including vitiligo, eczema, and acne. However, some oral pills may also be prescribed if the skin problem is severe. Another method for the cure of white spots on skin is exposure to sunlight for long time or to go for an artificial phototherapy. When the skin is exposed to light, cells that cause pigmentation becomes active. You can also use variety of cosmetics to cover up the white spots.

However, you should undergo a medical treatment for a permanent cure before it may become widespread and uncontrollable. A good and effective treatment is vital for avoiding frustration, psychological effects, and embarrassment.

Currently, laser and medical and surgical treatments are done for treating the white spots. With surgical treatment, the affected skin will be removed by a procedure.

Melanocytes cause pigmentation; they are located in the skin. As the medical science is so advanced nowadays, it is now possible to transplant these cells from some other part of the body to the affected skin area. As a result of this transplantation, white spots on skin or vitiligo can be fully cured.

There are some other skin diseases or disorders in which the skin color tends to become lighter or darker from the normal shade. Before using any of the treatments for vitiligo it is better to seek a dermatologist’s advice and confirm the symptoms. Regards, Dr.D.P.
