Please follow your doctor's advice. The pictures you have sent suggest that the patient is suffering from vitiligo. It is a disease where the body's immune system cells (T lymphocytes) start attacking the melanocytes (colour producing cells of the skin). It can spread rapidly sometimes and hence she has been given zempred to suppress these immune cells temporarily. Continue to apply tacrovera. There are many treatment options depending on the activity of the disease and areas involved. The face generally responds very well to treatment. The disease also responds well if treated early, as in this case. Don't worry about it. Don't stop treatment or change doctors just because she has new patches. Follow the doctors advice and discuss about the disease with your doctor. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore.
