Is there a traditional medicine to treat vitiligo?

Pyrostegia Venusta RoadsideTraditional medicines may be helpful in chronic, metabolic, and stress-related conditions early in the disease manifestation, before extensive tissue and organ damage has occurred. Vitiligo is not high on this list. 

Only for a very few traditional treatments is there any evidence of efficacy:

Potency of natural remedies depends on biochemical composition, which can vary with age, climate, variety, and soil. It varies even within the same consumer brand because of the season when plants were gathered. Therefore, the resultant dose and composition of these natural remedies may be truly unpredictable.

Like conventional medicines, traditional medicines may also cause side effects, trigger allergic reactions, or interfere with prescription drugs.

Do not use traditional medicines as a replacement for conventional treatment, or as a reason to postpone seeing a dermatologist. With very few exceptions, conventional treatment stops vitiligo progression faster, and provides longer and more stable repigmentation with manageable side effects.
