Hi! vitiligo is an auto immune disease which has relapses and remissions. Being auto immune ,it can be associated with other auto immune diseases like thyroid ,diabetis, asthma etc. You have to check those once in 3 to 6 months for vitiligo to be under control. Moreover, you need immunosuppresants like cyclosporine or azathioprine to control the spread of the disease. Regular check ups like complete blood picture ,lft etc needed to monitor if you were on immunosuppresants. Please do consult in person to a dermatologist as you need to get checked clearly the number of patches etc. As of now ,you can use tacrolimus and vitibex gel .keep good immunity by eating healthy fruits and vegetables and doing yoga and meditation which can keep vitiligo under control.

Levamisole is used for its immunomodulatory effect in vitiligo. But it alone is not very effective. It was used as an antihelmenthic drug initially. It is safe.

The white spots (called “drusen”) are deposits of metabolism of the retinal cells. The metabolism weakens as a process of ageing and macular cells become damaged. The macula is the part of the retina that is responsible for central fine vision. The retina is the part of the back of the eye that one sees with.

Fordyce spots happen when sebaceous glands, which moisturize your skin and are usually covered by your outer layer of skin, become enlarged and appear as tiny white spots. These spots are harmless. They can appear almost anywhere on your body, including your scrotum and penis. Let's have a detailed discussion to ensure proper treatment.

I have vitiligo on my lips moderately. I drink 3 cups of green tea everyday. Can green tea effect my vitiligo status?

Hello . Vitiligo occurs due to lack of melanine pigments from melanocyte cells , which can occur due to autoimmune disorder. Green tea is healthy for your health , but nothing to do with vitiligo.
