Sir, one of my relative has vitiligo problem, she used to take allopathic treatmetn (UV), she got cured but when she stopped using treatment, white patches reappear again, and now she is pregnant, she is in her 7 month, so tell me the proper treatment from where it gets cured for life...
In late October of 2004, doctors successfully transplanted melanocytes to vitiligo affected areas, effectively repigmenting the region. The procedure involved taking a thin layer of pigmented skin from the patient's gluteal region. Melanocytes were then separated out and used to make a cellular suspension. The area to be treated was then ablated with a medical laser, and the melanocyte graft applied. Three weeks later, the area was exposed to UV light repeatedly for two months. Between 73 and 84 percent of patients experienced nearly complete repigmentation of their skin. The longevity of the repigmentation differed from person to person.
The more traditional treatment given by most dermatologists is steroids.
A fern extract Calaguala may be an effective treatment for this condition.
