Abstract

Vitiligo significantly affects the quality of life of patients, their social and psychological adaptation in society. It has been noted that patients with vitiligo are more likely to develop anxiety and depressive disorders, suicidal thoughts. Standard therapy regimens today often take a long time, are not enough effective and do not always meet the expectations of the patient and the dermatologist, reduces compliance to treatment. In this regard, comprehensive therapy for vitiligo remains a pressing issue to this day.

Medical camouflage is a promising adjunctive or alternative therapy for vitiligo, as it allows to control the clinical manifestations of the disease.

The purpose of this review is to consider the main types of medical camouflage in the Russian and foreign markets, their availability and principles of action. The PubMed database and the Internet were used to identify the most effective, affordable, and easy-to-use products available in the Russian and foreign markets. The research identified the most significant products that are most convenient to apply to the skin and are easily available for purchase by vitiligo patients in Russia. Parameters such as shape, texture, composition and effect duration were evaluated. Each group of preparations was described in detail, as well as the technique for their correct application.

Thus, this review will be useful to all practicing dermatologists in controlling the clinical course of vitiligo as well as its skin manifestations.
