Complete Depigmentation Treatment

I have heard that there are some tablets/ creams that can completely depigment the body. If so what are these ? Any recommendations on doctors that provide this treatment ( especially in India) ? And what are the side effects of this treatment ?

I Have Melasma And Vitiligo

I Have Melasma And Vitiligo

I am going through menopause and developed dark patches of Melasma on my cheeks. I also have small white patches of vitiligo. Being brown I am now 3 colours on my face!. My vitiligo appears trauma induced and is present on elbows, arms and knees.

What Other Conditions Did You Get After Getting Vitiligo?

What Other Conditions Did You Get After Getting Vitiligo?

I’m wondering what other conditions people got after being diagnosed with vitiligo. Or before for that matter. I’ve seen some discussions of psoriasis. What other conditions did you get? Did they come before or after the vitiligo?
