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?

I’m a lot like you! I have small patches of Vitiligo on my elbows and knees. After I switched to a new birth control pill, I developed Melasma on my forehead, cheeks, and upper lip. I never had it on my chin, but now I’ve developed 2-3 small white spots on my chin. I’m terrified. I’m researching now that I’m in my 40’s. I’ve lived with Vitiligo and covered it with makeup since I was 12. I’m looking into laser phototherapy. Have you ever tried it? Hopefully, our Melasma won’t turn into Vitiligo. Stay strong and positive. :-)
