Brief Answer:
Steroid pulse therapy

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for the query.

Studies have shown that the best treatment for vitiligo is steroid pulse therapy. High dose of steroid is given in weekly pulses. This effectively stops the spread of disease.

Steroids are prescription drug. I suggest you visit your dermatologist and discuss about steroid pulse therapy. Let me know if you need any more help.

Thank you.
