Has Anyone After COVID-19 Vaccination Noticed Increase Or Flare Up In Their White Spots?

Has Anyone After COVID-19 Vaccination Noticed Increase Or Flare Up In Their White Spots?

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 wondering this same thing. Personally, I have had vitiligo in remission for about 15 years and then started developing new white patches in new areas (mainly face) that have never had signs of vitiligo, a few weeks after getting the second dose of Pfizer vaccine. I don't know what to do and am now scared that a booster shot will send my vitiligo further out of control. I have seen anecdotal evidence of this with others who have had the mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna). Anyone else have a similar experience? What about those who had the J&J vaccine?
