I have vitiligo that has spread quickly all over my body. I tried UVB light treatment but it was ineffective. I have been using monobenzone for about 4 months and have had slow but good results. I do develope small rashes from time to time and it did burn some when doing my neck and chest, but only for about 5 mins or so. It is however unpredictable. You can put it on your legs and your face ...

I had for 6 years Vitiligo and was extreme sheltered as I was very shy for my appearance. My GP reverted me to a dermatologist in London, who on his turn reverted me to another Dermatologist in Ireland. I was prescribed a 60% concentration Monobenzone Cream from a pharmaceutical company also in Ireland. First I was skeptical because of my insurance was not paying this HUGE amount of USD $ 338,- per medical Jar 60%. However, I used the products for 4 months which costed me a LOT. BUT the results are very satisfying I'm almost (5% to go yet) depigmented, I'm very happy and confident now. It's worth the large sum I paid. Just wanted to thank every specialist from Ireland who helped me out. Mrs. Mary Ann United States of AmericaRead More Read Less

I have vitiligo that has spread quickly all over my body. I tried UVB light treatment but it was ineffective. I have been using monobenzone for about 4 months and have had slow but good results. I do develope small rashes from time to time and it did burn some when doing my neck and chest, but only for about 5 mins or so. It is however unpredictable. You can put it on your legs and your face might get a spot ot lighten, while your legs don't change at all. I also found when I stopped treating certain areas, they began to lighten. The medicine is only available if you go to a compounding center, and dependeing on the areas you need to cover it can be expensive and insurance will not cover. Read More Read Less
