Looks like you have unstable vitiligo condition. There is no treament for stopping or arresting spreading, you CAN only arrest spreading thru dietary control AND for that you need to stop consuming, Eggs, Fish, beef, curd, milk, bananas and all sour articles. If you dont believe this, TRY THIS, take photos of your patches then consume curd for few days and see for yourself the affect of it.

Hi......dear user...,
welcome to HCM...,
thanks for your query......
White patches since 10 years means.....
......VITILLIGO which is resistant type..,
Don't use self medication for this condition..,
It will give bad results...,
Now very good treatment is available for Vitilligo...,
1) PUVA therapy ...50 t0 60 % result...for long using ( 10 to 12 months)..
2) Needling therapy....
3) Tatooing is not that much.., it has more side effects ...but result ..good
4) Skin grafting......tempting treatment.....very good result ..
but skilled ,experienced dermatologist can perform....
Hence it is complicated ...go for good dermatologist and get good result..
.....wish U best of luck......

Dermatologist Dr. M.K.Chhaperwal's  Response
There are many treatment options for vitiligo. For rapidly progressive vitiligo a short course of steroid may be given if not contraindicated. Narrowband ultraviolet therapy is a safest option for such type of vitiligo. Vitiligo is itself a frustating condition to treat. Keep patience and try to take treatment with one doctor only.
