I’m 39 and my vitiligo started back in may of this year. It’s on both of my eyebrows and I noticed my vision is getting worse and worse with a lot of sensitivity to light.
Hello, I would like to know if there are any studies showing the effect of vaccines ( especially annual flu shot and now COVID vaccine) in patients with vitiligo. With the mandatory annual flu shot for health providers and I am very concerned now that my vitiligo seems a little under control.
I’ve read so many stories of people’s spots spreading fast and mine (at one point I was getting one once a month) and now (I believe) 3 of my spots are reverting back. Does that mean mine is going away? I’m confused. Thank you.
has anyone seen a huge flare up after takimg the vaccine. Did a dr give any advice ?
Does anyone use a IV lamp or laser phototherapy at home? Has it been successful? Which one do you use? Can you please share a link
I looked into the clinics that does the laser but it’s so expensive and my insurance doesn’t cover it
Saw this post from 3 months ago but didn’t see any responses. Very interested as I recently got diagnosed
I got vaccinated in May 2021 with my first dose and by the end of July 2021, I noticed a sudden flare up and rapid progression.
I don't know if it is because of the vaccine because I was on antibiotics for a month in June.
This also raises another question, has anyone noticed increase in their vitiligo post/during the use of antibiotics?
Thank you all in advance.
I was told this by two doctors that Vitiligo is a fungus -I was also told by a dermatologist that is also associated and related to Hypo Thyroidism -Does anyone else have any information on this ? Are both Autoimmune issues too? Any feedback greatly appreciated
