These patches are pale in the starting, but become whiter and whiter as time passes by due to loss of pigment. As the spots enlarge, they unify into each other and, in course of time, form a very broad patch. In some cases, most of the skin of the body may be covered with white patches.

One gram of this powder should be taken every day with one cup of fresh milk for forty days continuously. The ground seeds should also be applied to the white spots. Babchi seeds, combined with tamarind (tamarind) seeds. are also useful. An equal quantity of both the seeds should be steeped in water for three to four days. They should then be shelled and dried in the shade. They should be ground into paste and applied to the white patches for a week.
