In brief: Vitiligo

Medical treatment for vitiligo isn't always necessary.
For some, skin color returns without treatment. Using sunscreen and applying cosmetic camouflage cream, may improve the appearance of your skin. For fair-skinned individuals, avoiding tanning can make the areas almost unnoticeable. Medical treatments for vitiligo aim to even out skin tone, either by restoring color (pigment).

In brief: Controlled not cured

It cannot be cured, but every effort is made to control it.
It is your body reacting to itself. Good luck!
