In brief: Stop methoxaslen

It is difficult to work with liquid without experiencing burns.
Use prescition strength steroid cream to decrease inflammation and if tolerated a peeling cream such as urea or retin a (tretinoin) can help lighten darkened areas. Excimer laser is safer for treating vitiligo-see ramed.Com.
