  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    I have some clinical experience with vitiligo and the results with natural treatments have not been very promising. In fact some of my patients, the symptoms actually got worse and the white patches started spreading. In one case, where ever the patient had some injury, at that spot new patches started appearing.

    I think it is better to take such treatments that help diffuse the demarcation between the light and dark areas. Take care not to go out in the sun without adequate protection or at least the sunscreen.

    In my opinion the best thing to do is to camouflage with cosmetic use.

    Let me know if I can assist you further.

  4. Opaque cosmetic cover-ups such as Dermablend and Covermark can be exactly matched to your normal skin tone. Such products are commonly used for small areas of pigment loss, especially on the face and hands. However, they do rub off and have to be reapplied during the day.

    Apply a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher on a daily basis to all depigmented spots to protect the affected skin from sunburn and photoaging. A sunblock containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide is preferable. Do this even if you do not anticipate being outdoors, as your skin is exposed to sunlight through windows in your home and car. Areas of vitiligo no longer have any protective pigment, burn easily, and are more susceptible to developing skin cancer. A product called Total Block combines an SPF of 60 with antioxidants and cover-up protective liquid makeup to cover and protect areas of vitiligo in a cosmetically pleasing way.
