Thanks for the query. Vitiligo is an immune system mediated skin disease which can be brought into remission by certain medications and life style changes. Now it is believed to be a multisystem disorder that can have other auto-immune comorbidities. A proper assessment to determine the presence and severity of these comorbidities is needed. Vitiligo spots need not always spread. There are basically 2 components of therapy – first is to stop the spread of the disease and second is to refill colour. There are different ways of doing that and it differs from patient to patient. If you have tried medical therapy and have not achieved desired results, you can consider surgical options like suction blister grafts/non cultured melanocytes suspension. It requires expertise to perform and results take few months to be visible. The prerequisite for surgery is stable disease for atleast a year. Most of the patients do well if they stick to the recommendations.

Hello.......Vitiligo is a continual and long-term skin problem that produces patches of white depigmentation that develop and enlarge in certain sections of the skin.Currently, there is no cure for vitiligo.7There are two types of vitilogo, segmental and non segmental.. It's difficult to guess the spread of vitilogo. The spread of white patches might occur in a matter of weeks for some, and for others, they might stabilize, not growing for months or even years.
