An 8-year-old female patient, Baby A. (PIN: 26057) visited Chembur branch of Life Force with the complaints of white spots on her left hip and right thumb on 27th June 2015.
The hypopigmented spot on her left hip was present since birth, and the hypopigmented spots on her right thumb had started appearing suddenly 1.5 years back and were spreading slowly. She was on steroid since 2014.
She had no family history of vitiligo. The patient was lean. She was following a mixed diet. She had a craving for sweets.
She was mild, shy, and emotional in nature. She had spent most of the time staying in daycare. She never shared her feelings. She had the fear of darkness and being alone.
After a detailed case analysis, Dr. Shah prescribed research-based medicine for vitiligo to the patient. She was advised to follow a diet and regimen too. She was also told to avoid sour foods.
When the patient gave the first follow-up on 21st August 2015, her old spots were stable. No new spots had appeared.
