See a dermatologist : Clobetasol or other steroid creams won't help, a specialist, a dermatologist, would help you better, good luck

See answer: For patients with increasing number and size of vitiligo spots over the previous 3-6 months stabilization therapy with oral corticosteroids plus narrowband ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) phototherapy is advised.For non-progressive local vitiligo unresponsive to potent topical corticosteroids phototherapy, self tanning lotion or tinted cosmetic creams are often used. Avoid corticosteroid creams on the face

Details matter: Where is the vitiligo? How large? How long? Your dermatologist may need to talk to you about accepting it or using a skin dye to hide it.
