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.

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.

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 .
