The easy answer is: Yes, it does. But how and when vitiligo goes away is complex issue that’s different for everyone.
Vitiligo is an auto-immune disease and is not understood all that well. Progress is being made but a real medical vitiligo cure currently available. This post is an overview of the known options. More specific information is available in included links.
So what can we do to make vitiligo go away?
There are several main ways to manage vitiligo:
- Mental & emotional
Medical options for vitiligo:
There are a variety of medical treatments that will re-pigment skin affected by vitiligo. To understand the best options available to you, go see a dermatologist. Viable vitiligo treatments include:
- UVB lightbox treatments
- Laser treatment
- Steroids and other pharmaceuticals
While these treatments are effective, they are generally temporary. There are no treatments that lead to a permanent cure, only temporary solutions.
Each person has to evaluate what is viable and best for them. Some people may not want to deal with the potential side effects of medical vitiligo treatments. Some people may not be able to afford medical vitiligo treatment. Some people may prefer natural vitiligo treatment.
Also, some people may not be able to get vitiligo to go away. Not everyone will be successful. I have found successful vitiligo treatments to be difficult to verify. It’s a frustrating process that everyone with vitiligo must go through.
