Vitiligo is an autoimmune condition whereby the body is attacking pigment cells within the skin.
It can be a very unpredictable condition which may spontaneously repigment (pigmentation returns) and then depigment (pigmentation disappears).
Response to treatment is also difficult to predict, however there are various treatment options available which include creams, gels and ointments; narrowband UVB phototherapy and punch grafting surgical techniques.
Various camouflage techniques are also useful to cover areas of vitiligo during treatment.
Your dermatologist will advise you of the best treatment options available for your particular presentation of vitiligo.
