I read your article about peppar possibly improving re-pigmentation in vitiligo patients. I have had vitiligo for nearly 10 years.
However, it is a very mild case and was not exposed on my face until a few years ago. My dermatologist has put me on a topical cream that doesn’t seem to do much for me. I applied it for three months with little to no improvements. I actually seemed to have more success without the medicine on my face.
My case seems to be based on stress. Vitiligo didn’t even break out on my face until I had a breakup with a girl I dated for three years. At the time I was very depressed and the vitiligo became noticeable on my face. Since then I got married and am living a very happy life. However, the vitiligo is still noticeable when I am not dying my beard.
My question to you is….How could someone crush up the black pepper small enough to be absorbed and could it be mixed with Vaseline for application? I was also curious about your thoughts on home UVB lights. Could these be beneficial for use if exposure was very minimal. I can’t afford the treatments at the dermatologist. I would really like to do laser treatments (Excimer laser). However, that is well out of my budget as well. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I really enjoyed your article.
