Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have vitiligo on forehead which is because the melanin producing cell melanocyte dies due to certain factors which produce white patches. It could be due to disorders in which immune system attacks melanocytes, related to hereditary and trigger by factors like excess sun exposure, chemicals or stress. Need not to worry. I would suggest you to protect your skin from sun by applying sunscreen with SPF 50. Apply turmeric powder mix with honey for 15 minutes daily. Consult dermatologist for proper evaluation. Doctor may prescribe topical corticosteroids , vitamin D supplement, ginkgo biloba or drugs to suppress immune system. You should soak psoralea seeds in ginger juice for three days . After three days rub them to remove their out covering.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
