White patches on skin.

Hi, I am 15 years old and I have had these white patches on my neck,arm, and mouth for about 2 years now. There are two spots on my skin where the white patch is about 6 inches long and its really embarrassing epically around my neck. Ive been on Vitilax,Antivitiligo, and vitamin pills for these pass two years and my white patches are slowly healing. There are little dots of my real skin around the white patches and im really happy but at this rate, its going to take like 20 years for it to be completely healed. Maybe because the white patches i have are really huge i dont know. If theres any other medication to quicken the procedure, please help!!

I think you have some thing called Vitiligo which occurs due to less of melanin pigments in the body. You can get it treated. See a good dermatologist or cosmetologist to treat your white patches. There are many recent therapy in the hospitals. You can get it checked with your Dermatologist.

My friend also had this kind of patches, he saw a Dermatologist. The doctor gave some medications, he was not getting better. He under went some light therapy called PUVA, you can also get this treatment. It is working wonder for him.

Do you have sensation in the patches, other wise it may be leprosy. Get it checked once again.
