Vitiligo is not contagious. Only chlorine in the water may be harsh. So measures againstharshness of chlorine may be applied.

I have a white patch on my back should I take melanocyl tablet 10 mg or apply tenovate ointment on it. As melanocyl will darken my whole skin. Also does homeopathy help treating vitiligo patch.

Dermatologist,
Don't take melanocyl without medical supervision. First of all confirm if you hv vitiligo or sm other issue. If vitiligo tacrolimus n steroids help with stabilizing the lesion. Then can use topical psorolen for regaining colour. Consult a dermatologist. Don't use random meds without supervision- you may end up harming urself.

Is it true that segmental vitiligo only spread for a period of 6- 12 months before it finally stabilizes? Is there only chance it could be reactivated later in life?

There are not enough information available on this topic. Generally spread stops abruptly and could remain stable for the rest of your life.

Your issue can be treated with homeopathy. It needs detailed case taking of your symptoms, their analysis and then prescription. 15-20 minutes of case taking will help me prescribe perfectly for your condition. The issue needs 2-3 months to be cured. If you need appointment, you can contact me.

Hello Ruth I am sure they gave you a steroid before you started tacrolimus, an immunomodulator.You would have to use the medications for atleast 6-8 weeks to see any improvement at all. Thank you Team Signature 18

This characteristic of segmental vitiligo causes fears among those affected as it can make you feel as though the white patches may cover your entire body. However, the spread stops abruptly and could remain stable for the rest of your life.
