Dear lybrate-user, sorry to hear this. First of all, stop applying any medication at this point. If the kid is still having itching or redness. Please give him tablet dazit-m once daily. It may help to reduce the allergic response. We manage a lot of vitiligo patients and for best management, it is always better to meet the dermatologist face to face. You are welcome to contact us for an appointment if you prefer that.

You can not predict if it would not expand. The white patches may start small and sometimes remain this way, but they can also slowly increase until the patch covers a large part of the body. Some ayurvedic medicine are known to check it and sometimes cure it.

Hello, lybrate-user,as I am ayurvedic consultant ,i m not prefer both the transplant therapy, because both have massive side effects, in later, please go through natural treatment like ayurvedic treatment, which have no side effect, and your vitiligo vanish naturally, after transplant it would have chances of reoccurrence. According to your question, repigmentation of vitiligo is closely related to hair follicles.

Hii, if the itching and redness persists, it is possible that you have got mild burns. Stop melanocyl for a few days. You can start with lesser sunexposure time after application of melanocyl. You should increase it in a graded manner. Please consult your dermatologist.

Hi, many a times, when a skin lesion heals, it heals with a bit hyperpigmentation (dark areas) or hypopigmentation (light colored areas). Mometasone used for a few days should not cause such a problem. For proper diagnosis and management of these patches, I suggest to consult a dermatologist online or offline. Stay blessed and safe.
