The vitiligo can attack any areas of body, and the treatments should base on the different attack areas and stages. The various treatments and medicines can be used to treat vitiligo.
When we get treatments, we want to know about the effects. We can make some simple judgments by ourselves.
1. The white patch’s boundary from obstreat turn clear, or the boundary color turn deep.
2. The previous white patches won’t spread any more.
3. The white spot color gets red or light, obstreat, and narrow to the center.
4. The boundary color shows deep color.
5. In the center, there are the little black dots, melanin island, or the surround of white patch turn deep.
6. The stealth white patch disappeared.
The acral type of vitiligo show t the white spots usually on hand, feet, around eyes and lip. When the symptoms show on hand and feet, the vitiligo is with risk to spread to head, especially the lip and around eyes. The head white spots are easier to show effects than hand and feet, especially fingers.
But the color of white spots will change according to the development of vitiligo. The initial stage is only light white, then the condition get more worse to be cloud white, milk white, finally is the smooth porcelain white. Once the white spots turn to the smooth without veins, the skin’s normal function is lost. Then the effects of treatments should be slow to shown.
The fingers and toes also show a slow effect than the other areas, so we advice the patients to treat early.
The different levels of white spots show different speed of treatment effects.
