Segmental vitiligo vs others and birthmarks

OK, firstly we need to diagnose this condition. If you could see a general dermatologist, this would help. You may have segmental vitiligo. This is very hard to treat, in theory RECELL technology can treat this, but your pigment cells maybe prone to 'self destruct ' in this area. 


I would do a graft transfer first before anything else as a test patch. 

All the best
