Hi mads,
Thanks for writing in.

Effective treatment are now available for vitiligo or white spots.
Few oral medications and few newer lotions like pseudocatalse are now available .
Also phototherapy and excimer laser are effective in treating white spots.

Consult a good dermatologist for taking these treatments.

Hope this helps.

MD Dermatologist.
