I Have Melasma And Vitiligo

I Have Melasma And Vitiligo

I am going through menopause and developed dark patches of Melasma on my cheeks. I also have small white patches of vitiligo. Being brown I am now 3 colours on my face!. My vitiligo appears trauma induced and is present on elbows, arms and knees.
I wonder when the melasma goes if vitiligo will replace the dark patches? Has anyone experienced this?

Stress And Vitiligo

Stress And Vitiligo

This is worrying to me as there are a lot more stressful events to come. We do not put ANY pressure on any of our kids for marks at school - they must just always do their best - we know what each one's potential is. So I really try to "de-stress" all possible stressful situations from my side. Anyone with advise… read more
