Hello,

There is no treatment of vitiligo so effective so as to effectively make all the spots disappear. There is no cure for vitiligo. Treatment with UVA & UVB light help to slow down the discoloring process & return some color to your skin.

You are suggested to get your child physically examined by a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care. All the best.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K, General & Family Physician
