Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am affected by vitiligo disease in the lower lip. The doctor suggested taking Decapeptide lotion Melgain. I also have taken, but it does not work. Now I did not receive any medicine. So which medicine should I take?

Answered by Dr. Sandeep Dawre


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, Oral medication, Phototherapy, Surgery and 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.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
