Hi- I’m scheduled to see someone out of state for my generalized vitiligo in July. However, I would love to have the name of a physician in the Atlanta GA area. My son also has vitiligo ( he is 25) and has started to see progression. I would love to have him see someone in our area.
Thank you so much!

I have Vitiligo and just got diagnosed with Lupus. Does anyone here have them both. How do you deal with them? If I am going to be honest. I put it in God’s hands, but I am afraid.
