Thanks for posting your query.

Your blood sugar and TSH levels are within normal limits.

Vitiligo and psoriasis are auto immune conditions.

Auto immunity is a condition wherein few of our body cells consider themselves to be foreign and damage our own body.

Genetic component is also involved in the development of these diseases.

It is manifested in the form of many diseases.

Vitiligo and psoriasis are few of them.

They cannot be reversed but can be arrested by medications and would need life long treatment.

Psoriasis also shows seasonal variations.

It is aggravated during winter.

Usually the lesions are treated when active and stopped when normal.

As I practise allopathy it is difficult for me to comment on the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines. Please see a Dermatologist for complete evaluation and continuous treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. In case of any doubts, I am available for the follow ups.

Wishing you good health.
