Treating vitiligo

Wednesday, May 31, 2006

Is there any treatment of vitiligo in homeopathy? My son, who is nine years old, has started getting small patches all over his body.

Yes, homeopathy can help with this but a long treatment is required. One cause of vitiligo is worms, you could try giving your son a worm treatment.

Before you start any treatment, there is a common fungal skin disorder that looks very much like vitiligo. Try putting straight tea tree oil on the spots for a week and see if this helps.
