Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
is an autoimmune condition ,where in our own body cell start destroying our own cells and in this case its melanocytes which give color to our body. First check whether you have any other auto immune problem or not like thyroid
problem etc. There are two basic types of vitiligo âone which is stable (not spreading) & other which is active (spreading).If it is spreading you need to take medicines which can stop the growth of the lesion .Secondly you need to repigment these white patches and that can be done by photo toxic medicines like melanocyl. Melanocyl comes in two forms âoral & cream/lotion. We give oral melanocyl when the lesions are extensive .This tab has to be taken orally and patient has to expose these white patches to sunlight after 2hr.One has to protect his eyes during this treatment by wearing UVA protective glasses. This treatment is called PHOTOTHERAPY
or PUVA therapy
. Some clinic or hospital have PUVA chambers where you can go and take PUVA therapy.This treatment gives color to your white patches. Along with this patient has to apply steroid
creams over the skin too. Other auto immune condition if present needs to be treated along with. In stable localized cases we can also go for surgery called skin grafting
.So,meet a dermatologist(allopathy) who would understand your problem and discuss with him above points .I am sure you would get good relief.All the best .If you have further queries plz feel free to contact us.
Take care ,
