White patches are coming on my skin associated with itching. After some days they are regressing and starting at a new place. What could it be. How can I get rid of those?

Dear Lybrate User, You need not to worry about your disease as we have got expertise in treating Vitiligo. Vitiligo is a genetic disorder triggered by indigestion and stressful conditions. Suggesting any medicines or local application to you will not be a good idea, as I will require a complete case taking so that the root of cause is eliminated to prevent relapse. There is always a confusion in patients’ mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Every patient has 3 choices: 1.Allopathy - gives quick results but is not very safe for long term use. 2.Homeopathy- is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i.e old patches show some recovery but new white patches continue to come even while using the medication. 3.Ayurveda -If one thinks about. It is difficult to find a good Consultant. We have integrated external Allopathic applications with internal Ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. With more than 20000 patients in last 15 years we have refined ayurvedic treatment which is capable of giving quick results and is safe. Vitiligo is such a detail subject that it can not be explained in few lines. There are many queries about differential diagnosis ,causes ,triggers, is it genetic, diet, curable etc. For detailed queries like: 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation you can contact the clinic.
