When I start taking medicines for the first two years the white spots become less but they do not go permanently. But they do not grow. But after 2 years of taking medicines they grow.

Hello,

Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder.
It can only be controlled with the help of immunosuppressive drugs like steroids.
It cannot be cured.
It is also not possible to predict the course of disease.
It might resolve on its own but can reappear.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rahul Kumar, Dermatologist
