I am 24 year old. I have a vitiligo on my penis. Doctor prescribed melanocyl tablet and cream .Is this ok .? How could i take this both ?
Hmm...need more info: Melanocyl is a powerful photosensitizer and is generally taken or applied before receiving light therapy.

Hi, I'm 18 years old and i have vitiligo. I have the focal type and it's been been stable for 8 months. Can i go under melanocyte transplantation?
Be careful: Vitiligo while cosmetically concerning, is a harmless condition. Melanocyte transplantation is not a recognized treatment and it may be suggested by some one trying to separate you from your money. I would recommend leaving it alone. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
