How To Get Rid Of White Spots On My Face

Question: How To Get Rid Of White Spots On My Face

I'm an African American 39 year old woman and three years now I've had a white circle on the right hand side of my face.

I went to the dermatologist and used 3 different creams at three different times and nothing worked so I got frustrated and stopped going to the doctor because I felt she was just taking my money.

Now I'm really getting tired of looking at this white spot and trying to cover it up with make up everyday. Thankfully when I got it tested its not Caner but I want my FACE BACK.

What can I use in order to get my pigmentation back in that spot that wont cost me a fortune?

P.S. I already tried that Selsun Blue shampoo thing that was recommended to me and it made matters worse, good thing my face came back to normal. PLEASE HELP, I MISS MY NATURAL BEAUTY.

The prescriptions I used to far are BIAFINE, PROTOPIC and LOCOID LIPOCREAM.

I surfed the web and came across the below website, what do you think?

Hi there. I'm really sorry to hear about the troubles you're having with your skin. I'm glad to hear that it's not cancer or anything dangerous.

Unfortunately, the only thing I can do other than suggest you cover it up with makeup (which you already do) is tell you to go to the dermatologist (which you already did). That white mark on your skin is something for a medical doctor to treat. I can only give my humble beauty advice.

As for that website you found. Until a doctor establishes that you have vitiligo I wouldn't spend money to try this product. If you already have it confirmed that you do have vitiligo, a dermatologist would be the best person to give you treatment.

Dermatologists are expensive, but for certain skin disorders it's best you stick with them than trying to figure it out on your own.

For now though keep doing what you're doing and use makeup to even you skin and give thanks that it's not a symptom of something more serious. You are beautiful no matter what.
