Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

For vitiligo, there are many lines of management.

If the patch is unstable, then oral medications can be advised.

But if the vitiligo patch is stable, that is no change in the size of the patch over six months, then surgery can be done to re-pigment the vitiligo patch. Suction blister, nonculture melanocyte transfer or phototherapy can be done.

Clinical examination of the patch is important before considering any therapy.
