Quick Tips

• Always take psoralen tablets 2 hours before the UV radiation exposure along with food or milk.
• Take a plain shower before your treatment to keep your skin clean and dry.
• Do not use perfumes, aftershave, deodorants or other cosmetics and toiletries as they make your skin even more sensitive to the UV light causing blistering of your skin.

• Avoid any other form of artificial UV treatment or relaxation e.g. solarium or sunbathing.
• Men should take the required precautions to protect the genital area.
• Always wear protective goggles while receiving your light dose in the cabinet.

Dr. Banashree Majumdar

I can understand your problem but you need to understand that vitiligo has a tendency to spread in due course of time, and hence it is always better to consult a dermatologist personally as you are intelligent enough to understand the fact that we cannot prescribe any medication which have a lot of side effects online, as it can harm you. You need proper treatment regimen with few oral medications too. Please visit nearby dermatologist personally for through clinical examination along with laboratory tests
