What could it be if having white spots around eyes on which medicines do not have much effect?

I have the same problem . I have two almost identical white spots around my eyes. They have been there for almost a year. I have been told it s vitiligo and been prescribed betnovate by my GP. This did not help. I have recently been to India where I was given top graft and 20 thioran tabs 50 mg. I have taken these but no effect as yet. What would you suggest I do next

Hi,

I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like Mometasone cream on the affected areas in the morning along with Tacrolimus 0.1 percent ointment on the affected areas at night. Also take tablet Zinc Sulphate twice daily. Continue these for 3-4 weeks.

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

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
