Hi deepti,
Thanks for writing in.

Vitiligo is caused by autoimmune factors.

Vitiligo is treatable now.With correct treatment all your white spots can be treated.

phototherapy and excimer laser are very effective for vitiligo or white spots.
They are available at dermatology clinics.

Discuss the option of Pulse therapy with your dermatologist.It will have rapid effect.

Hope this helps.
