Are Online Vitiligo Cures Real?
Are you sick and tired of feeling insecure about your looks because of the white patches on your skin? Are you desparately searching for a miracle cure? Well, keep your guard up as you search for an answer.
There is a plethora of online shops selling cremes and pills which promise to cure vitiligo. Unfortuately, there is no universal organization who monitors their claims and if you’re not careful, you can easily spend $50 for a product that really offers no results.
So, how can you tell if a product is as good as it sounds?
First of all, look at the company. In which country are they located? This should give you a basic idea of the standards which went into making the product.
Look at the website. Does the site look professional? That’s a good start but you have to dig deeper.
- are they affiliated with the medical community?
- is there a working telephone number which you could use to contact them with questions?
- is the content professionally written? check the spelling, grammar use, and make sure they don’t use broken english. This indicates that they may be located in a different country where the laws governing product safety may not be safe.
The main thing I check for is whether or not the site gives customer testimonies. If they don’t, this raises a red flag. If they do, though, I go the extra step and read them. Obviously the company will only publish good testimonies so you have to go further:
- after reading all of the testimonials, does the wording and flow sound similar? This could indicate that one person wrote all of them.
- if it says that the testimony was written by Mary Smith from Florida, make sure that it doesn’t use broken english or an unfamiliar written flow. This could indicate that it was written by someone in another country not familar with conversational english in america or England.
- is the text a bit nonsensical? this could indicate that a translating software was used.
I’d really like there to be a product somewhere out there that can cure vitiligo but I have to ask…if it really works, then why isn’t the company and its products being written about in medical journals or being sold by every pharamcy in the world? They’d make a fortune much faster than selling the “miracle cure” on a little online site.
Where’s the good news? What can help?
Well, after doing a lot of research and talking to people who have rid the white patches from their skin, I think I can safely say that the key may lie in taking Amino Acid, B12, and exposing the areas to sunlight (natural or UVA) . So, that’s what I am going to try. This will be my experiment; to see if taking amino acid and b12 daily and sitting in the sun for 30 minutes each day, will repigment my skin.
