White patches started at age 3.5 yrs. They develop and vanishes and develop mainly on feet. Patches that develop on body parts that had an injury come faster and also vanish faster(3-5 months) but that come on other body parts takes long time to vanish and some patches have not even vanished. There is no itching on the white patches.We gave him Decaris tablets and applied pacroma & melgain cream but his TLC increased sharply (above 17000) within 3-5 months. Can you please help us out in ascertaining the disease?
