Hello Nasrul,
From your description I think you may be having SEGMENTAL VITILGO.
you may send me your pics for confirmation. Medical treatment mostly doesnt work on this type of vitiligo but responds excellently to surgery. The various options are
Noncultured melanocyte transplantation
Suction blister grafting. There are methods too, but these two methods give the best reults. If you are from gulf you can visit Dr Sanjeev Mulekar. You can give him my reference.
If you are from India, you can see me.

Hi,

As rightly pointed by Dr.Gaurang, you need to be evaluated and may need to undergo surgical correction. Certain syndromes like Waardenburg syndrome need to be ruled out as well.

You can visit the Cosmetology Clinic on Wednesday at CMC Vellore.

Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi!nasrul ,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Nasrul ,if the lesions are milky white in color ,then what you are having is called VITILIGO.Its a autoimmune condition where in our own cell start killing our melanocyte cells in the skin and thus leading to white patches.At times it is associated with thyroid problem also ,so you should get a blood check up done to rule out other auto immune conditions as well.
There are various treatments available in allopathy,but it depends whether the patches are spreading or not.Options available are :
1) oral and topical steroids
2) melanocyl tablets
3) phototherapy(PUVA & NBUVB)
4) Surgery
5) lasers
6) other topical creams like tacrolimus and pimecrolimus.
Treatment depends upon your stage and activity of the lesion.
So consult a dermatologist who would explain you the cause and treatment options .

regards,
Dr.chawda

Hello doctor, I had theses white spots on my skin since birth I was always told that the doctor whom delivered me said it is a birth mark. At first it was on my right upper forehead and my hair has a lighter coloring on one side then the other. Like if I was to flip my hair over the right side of my hair is like 3-5 shades lighter than if I was to flip the left half of my hair. I have no clue if is due to my skin or not but recently I have looked at my skin now these white spots are covering my left arm and leg and now I have noticed some of these marks on my neck right arm and leg, on my back and stomach also on the left side of my face. I was wondering if there is anyway I can speed the appearing of these marks while also keeping them? I find them beautiful but yet odd since its been almost 17 years now and they are still spreading. Is there any set timing when they will stop spreading? Thank you for your time and your help.
