Supportive Measures

It is important to avoid sun exposure as the white patches may get burned. In order to avoid sun exposure, the patient will be suggested to wear protective clothing. Avoiding sun exposure at peak sun times and using high-factor sunscreen etc. will also help the patient to protect the affected skin from further damage.
Injured skin may increase the chance for new white patches in the same area. Adults with NSV should check for other autoimmune conditions. Blood test may also be suggested for thyroid autoantibodies. Thyroid function shall also be monitored. Symptoms of diabetes, pernicious anaemia, thyroid disease and Addison?s disease will also be checked. Symptoms of these conditions should be reported to the doctor immediately. The overall health including mental health should also be maintained well.
