Background: Vitiligo also known as Leucoderma is a hypopigmentary autoimmune disorder which destroy the melanocytes in the skin and produces white blotches over body. Its prevalence rate between 3 to 4% in India and 1% of world population. In Ayurveda Vitiligo can be correlated to Shwitra, is harmless but a very serious cosmetic problem which affect the emotional, psychological and social well- being of affected person which results in depression which may hamper their future. Modern and AYUSH systems of medicines mentioned many medicines and therapies in classics and also many products available in market for Vitiligo but majority amongst them is not that much effective may be due to unstandardized procedures or raw materials used. Many of Ayurvedic medicines advised for Shwitra is to be taken after “Virechana” Panchkarma procedure which is some times very difficult to conduct in children’s and many times it is mentioned in classics that it is contraindicated in Pediatrics age group because of Alpa Bala (Immature immune system) due to this the proper effects of medicines can’t be seen. So, the efforts made in this regards to make such effective medicine for children’s that may be used very easily and without any difficult Panchkarma procedure. This may become a new hope in acute and acquired Vitiligo treatment in children’s. Objective: To analyze the effect of self made Ayurvedic Topical medication (Dhyas Powder) with Bakuchi oil in Vitiligo.

The patient was treated with Classics based self made herbal Ayurvedic Topical medication (Dhyas Powder - prepared in GMP Certified Kushagra Pharmacy Bareilly) and Bakuchi oil with half hour exposure of sun light in early morning. Results: - White patches healed completely (100%) and no recurrence of new white patches. Discussion: In Vitiligo, skin loses its pigmentation due to melanin deficiency but in this Dhyas Powder, main ingredient is “Bakuchi” which has active chemical composition Psoralens, Psoralidin etc. which on exposure to sun light forms melanin in depigmented skin.
