About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

I have vitiligo . the only normal skin pigment I have left is on both cheeks on my face . I want to get rid of it permanently . There has to be something available to help me ! I have been to a dermatologist in both Wheeling , WV and in Pittsburgh , PA . The one in Wheeling did several Fraxal ( ??) lasure treatments and then said he was done because the results weren t worth doing more . The one in Pittsburgh gave much false hope That was in the middle of March as of yet I STILL have not been given the prescriptions she recommended . They were basically for skin cancer , not approved by the FDA and both medicare and my insurance refused to pay for those reasons . today I got a call saying since they can t get them to approve the drugs good bye your on your own unless you pay for them yourself otherwise , we re done with you . the drugs were close to $300.00 with no guarantee of helping
