Protopic (Tacrolimus) 0.1% Use In Children

Protopic (Tacrolimus) 0.1% Use In Children

Hi my son (8) has been having UVB treatment for vitiligo for about 6 months now with good effect.
The dermatologist has prescribed him Protopic to use alongside the UVB treatment, but everything I can find about it says this concentration shouldn't be used in children under 16yrs and I don't really know what the side effects might be.

Has anyone else used this treatment with there child?
