White Patches on Face

I started to have white patches on face after my visit to Goa (got to exposed to a lot of sun rays there). I consulted a dermatologist. As per his recommendations I applied fluticasone cream for two weeks and a vitamin tablet. After that he gave me Purol-H and told me that I would be cured within two weeks. However, I am worried that I might have vitiligo which is not curable. Can you please confirm whether it is vitiligo or not? I have attached a picture for your reference.

Vitiligo can't be diagnosed with accuracy until a personal consultation is done. Kindly see a expert who deals with a lot of Vitiligo cases to be sure of what it is. There are certain specific blue lights which makes it easy to diagnose.
