Have idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis. Looking for effective product to improve this skin condition

Yes. Good afternoon. I have the skin condition ideopathic guttate hypermelanosis. I have spoken with a dermatologist about it as well as read several articles about it. Can you recommend any organic product that can be used to improve this skin condition. I already know that there is no cure for it and that it is not a life-threatening skin condition. Three months ago I purchased the product Bakuchi Taila to treat this condition. It is one of those ayurdevic treatments. I can t say whether it s effective or not. It will take some time for it to show results.

Dermatologist 's  Response

Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis is a benign condition. There may be depigmented roun macules more on shin of legs, but occur any where on the body.There is no treatment. It may be kept untreated as it is harmless and does not spred to become patch. Numbers may increase but size remains small..

Baluchi taila you are using has no role in treatment. It will not improve the color. The disease may be increased by sun exposure. Ageing process may exacerbate the disease.

Local applications of tretinoin gel for long time might be helpful.

Oral antioxidants and omega 369 may be taken for long time.

Be relaxed and avoid worries for IGH.. A benign skin condition.

I hope you got my answer.
