White patches on lips, eyes, ears. Using flucort h cream. Will it work on old patches?

I have white patches and used to apply Flucort H cream. I noticed changes but since more patches were noticed elsewhere on my body and application of cream to all areas takes a long time daily I discontinued about 5 years back. Now I want to at least bring colour changes for few small patches on lips , around the eyes , ears. Will application of Flucort to the old patches bring any benefits now. Please advise. Does it require exposure to sun after application of flucort.

I would be pleased to answer your question .

No , application of Flucort will not bring color back in the patches .
You will first need to get a Wood' s lamp test done at the Dermatology clinic .

and once the pigmentation in the patch is assessed for , you can consider a the peptide and tacrolimus treatments which will need a prescription from your Dermatologist .

thanks and take care
