In brief: Protopic or Elidil

These are two creams that may safely be used to treat vitiligo.
It is very dependent on where the vitiligo is. Lesions on the face respond much better than other areas on the body. In addition, treatment with narrow band ultra-violet therapy works well. Or treatments with an excimer laser may give excellent results. Some vitamins may help but no scientific data is available.
