Vitiligo: Great question! there are few great treatments for vitiligo, and none that i know to provide a "self-cure". Long-term (1 yr) ultraviolet light therapy at a dermatologist can be helpful. A topical medicine called Protopic has also shown to be helpful in thin skin areas affected by vitiligo--face, lips, eyelids, neck. Not very helpful on elbows, hands, etc. See your doctor.

Yes: Vitiligo is believed to be autoimmune in nature and it is unpredictable in behavior. There are variants of vitiligo that are benign and do not spread.
