Limited: Oral vitamins including b complex, vitamin c and Folic Acid along with ginkgo biloba are sometimes helpful in repigmentation skin. However localized vitiligo is best treated with phototherapy such as narrow band uvb. There are home units available by prescription form a dermatologist if multiple office visits is not practical.
