Would Someone Explain The Difference Between Acrofacial And Generalized Vitiligo?

Would Someone Explain The Difference Between Acrofacial And Generalized Vitiligo?

I’ve seen so many charts and read conflicting information about these two types. Thank everyone who is willing to answer or know the answer to this question.

Well I’m confused as usual…AGAIN! ONE of my dermatologist just informed me last week that I’m considered localized or focal (still don’t understand that one), yet a prior doctor said since I have twins then it’s non-segmental generalized (acrofacial). That’s why I decided to stop asking questions from the supposedly professionals. I feel like this is like a box of chocolates, I never know what I’m going to get from a doctor.

Hi Vitipower, I like your name here. I find no ryme or reason to vitiligo. I'm 64, it's been spreading since my earliest memories. Now and again I will find areas gaining pigment. Yesterday I recognized the dark spot spreading on my eyelid. God's sense of humor? Just when I thought my face would some day be one color, nope! Namaste'

Raptor76,

I have read about if you have twins it’s generalized, and I have twin spots except for one area. The corner of my right eye has a spot but not my left. So the coup didn’t get the memo on the left side😂. It took months for my right ear to show a spot compared to my left ear. Mine are just crazy.

It’s like my right and left body parts mimic each other
