But with the time goes by, the patients will found the medicine treatment effects is not as good as before or have no any treatment effects. Vitiligo patients long term take medicines will have drug resistance reaction. It mainly because some medicines under the effect of drug metabolizing enzyme in the liver, when the medicines enter into the blood and it’s action sites, under the effect of certain medicine concentration, it play the role in certain effect, but it will take a short time before the medicine was broke down under the action of liver drug enzyme, it’s effect will decreased.

Vitiligo patients if want to get rid of the white spots in their skin should insist the treatment. Vitiligo patients also need to combine many treatments together to treat their vitiligo at the same time.
