No great way: (1) exposed area, cosmetic such as Dermabase. (2) try to ascertain if there is an autoimmune process going on especially with the thyroid. (3)Consider a trial with UVB-NB phototherapy. (4)Learn to leave with it.

Vitiligo: Medical treatment for vitiligo isn't always necessary. Using sunscreen and applying cosmetic camouflage cream, may improve the appearance of your skin. Treatment options include cortisone creams, immune modulators like tacrolimus or pimecrolimus, or photochemotherapy (puva).
