Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have vitiligo as you said, but I need to see your lip lesions in personal. If required biopsy will be done, if it is vilitigo. Then there are lots of options to treat vitiligo with a varying prognosis like,

1. Oral medication.

2. Phototherapy.

3. Surgery.

4. Tattooing.

Each procedure has its pro and cons. You have to discuss in details in person with your doctor. With only oral medication, it will not work, need to club another form of treatment in it.
