Getting treatment.

I went to the dermatologist (for the very first time ever) on Wednesday of this week. He suggested the following to treat the vitiligo:

1) NB-UVB therapy. 2x a week until I see results. He said the face responds *well* to this type of phototherapy. Here is a link with some info: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/557113

2) A Hydrocortisone type medicine for the depigmented areas.

3) Vitigone for a cosmetic fix. Available online here: http://www.vitigone.com/products.cfm
He says I can use the Vitigone while doing the phototherapy treatments and creme.

I am cautiously optimistic. Just wanted to let you all know in case you were thinking about going to see someone. I started the phototherapy on Wednesday too. It felt like what I think it would feel like to go to a tanning booth.

Hope this has helped someone here.
