Hello,

If you have developed white spots at the site of herpes zoster lesions then it's not vitiligo.
It is loss of pigment due to infection.
Treatment is usually not required and it recovers slowly, however it is better to meet a dermatologist and take an opinion.

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

Regards,
Dr. Rahul Kumar, Dermatologist

Dear Doctor, I am suffering with Vitiligo for last 6-7 years and almost 75-80 % of my body is covered with this white patches. Now I am thinking of whitening my whole body. But I just want to know whether I can do it part by part (i.e. only where I have my natural color as black spot) Instead of taking any tablets is there any lotion or cream to apply on the black spot.

I have a burning pain (lasts about 5 seconds) on my right index finger only, no other part of my hand hurts. Only on one side. Pain comes and goes and does not appear to be related to the use of my finger. Sx has lasted about 2 weeks. Today I can see three tiny blisters (in a row) on the surface of the skin where the pain occurs. I am wondering if it is a mild case of shingles. I am female; 55 years-old.
