Dermatologist 's  Response

I am Dr. Rahul Nagar from New Delhi. I am a qualified dermatologist. You are most probably suffering from vitiligo, which is very common and completely harmless disorder of pigmentation. If you want, you may consult me for personal advice.

I am not sure how ayurveda works since I am an allopathic doctor but there are multiple treatments for vitiligo like PUVA, NB-UVB, steroid creams, immunomodulators, surgery, laser.

I can help you.
