You should have...: ...Some blood tests drawn to rule out any internal causes. Once that's done, look for a dermatologist with a uv light laser which is approved for vitiligo. Vitiligo is very difficult to treat in any case; there may not be an effective treatment for you. If not, special makeups such as covermark and dermablend are quite effective in concealing it.
