Have vitiligo. No medication till now. What could be the remedy for this?

Hi, I have vitiligo and I there is a gentleman that I met who informed me of a topical ointment that he has been using for years. He says that it is very expensive, however, he showed me pictures of spots that are no longer there. I'm trying to find out the name of the ointment to see if my doctor will prescribe it to me as he said its something you have to ask for because it's not usually prescribed.
