3. sir i am 27 year male…now developing white patches on rt. palm….since 2 years..what i should do .?
Is it spreading in nature. Please ask some one to look your back and understand if there any patches? This may be a simple nutritional deficiency. Take good amount of water, fresh vegetables and fruits. Vitamin D deficiency possibility should be ruled out. Take the following medicines for the time being to improve digestion and metabolism which in turn solve this trouble swiftly.

Ludem capsules – 1-1-1 after food with warm milk

Chitraka Haritakai Lehyam – 1 tablespoon twice daily after food with warm milk

Ludem Oil – External application once a day followed by warm water bath after 45 minutes.
