phototherapy is avery good option. If your disease is stabilized you can also use flucort-H cream on your white spots. Camoflage creams are available by the name of Dermacolor, but you have to go to the manufacturers as the creams have to be customized according to your skin colour.

can i marry with girl who had family history of vitiligo.She or her mother doesn't have it,but her grand mother & grandfather had it.My family don't have it.what i should do?
Dermatologist Dr. Resham J. Vasani (Bhojani)'s  Response
the treatment is beneficial for vitiligo but does take many sittings for the response to be seen . u may have to take certain tablets to stabilize ur vitiligo until there are no new lesions and there is no increase in the size of the existing lesions.
camouflage creams are available in gud branded cosmetics shop the brand being dermablend.
