Q.

Vitiligo

I've got a 4 year old daughter who is starting to develop vitiligo.The area around her eyes , chin and knees are white .
I've heard about a gel called Novitil .Any idea if it is safe , does it work ?
We 've also seen a dermatologist who says we should just live with it ..Any advice would be greatly appreciated .

This is a huge problem in my experience. However I do not subscribe to the idea that you should just live with it.Please let me know where you live-the city-and I will recommend the best dermatologist to consult in that place.
