Only concern will be in case of active generalised vitiligo, who needs some sort of immunosuppression or immunomodulation for short term. Although such medicines are readily available in patient's country and extensively used in other conditions but due to lack of willingness in the local dermatologists to opt such important measure they don't get the prescription (In some countries the prescription of Dr. Holla is honoured at the chemist shop- one has to speak to the local chemist shop regarding this).
In such situation it is helpful to get those medicines from relatives and friends based at or visiting India. It is difficult to send such medicines by courier due to customs issues.
In case previous option is not available, one can go for locally available non prescription immunomodulators.
After 1st consultation, it is preferable to have subsequent consultation in 2 months and later follow up in 3-6 months depending on the response to treatment. This scheduling is necessary to get satisfactory results.
