Vitiligo On Hands

Vitiligo On Hands

If anyone would be so kind as to answer this question. I know everyone’s spots are different and unique, but was just getting a sense of an idea on what’s going on with my hands. Even though this can be different for everyone, this helps me get a bit calm in understanding how it happened to others, plus I LOVE hearing everyone’s story about how it started with vitiligo. This helps me not feel so alone with this next chapter of vitiligo.

I too have a small spot of vitiligo on my right hand; the hand is essentially a ‘joint area’ of the body. Joint areas normally take longer to treat than non-joint areas of the body. Treatment of Vitiligo on the hand, feet, ankles, elbows, wrists and neck treatment require perseverance to achieve success. I'm suggesting you go your dermatologist to get diagnosis for your hand and then allow your doctor to determine your action of treatment. My dermatologist explained to me joint areas are under constant movement which causes stress to the area making treatment slower; he has me for treatment with Vitilox Cream and Vitilox Vitamin B12 & Folic acid tablet. I apply Vitilox Pigmentation Cream to the affected area twice a day, mornings and evenings. Because my hands are washed often in a day, the cream is applying twice a day instead of the usual once daily. One Vitamin B12 & Folic acid tablet is taken in the morning with my breakfast. The Vitilox Vitamin B12 & Folic acid worked well in preventing any further spread of the Vitiligo. 😀

I started with a couple of spots and stress from Covid and not getting my phototherapy treatment cause it to spread on my hands and bottom part of my arms. My results has slowed down but I see improvement!

Mine started at the base of my nails and worked it’s way down toward the wrists. I first noticed spots on my fingers in my 20s. I’m now in my 70s, so it took a while. But when I go through periods of more stress, the white patches seem to grow more quickly. Strangely, sometimes during the summer months, the white patches shrink, but then go back to when’re they were when winter arrives.

Slow at first in specific spots Like past scabs or cuts that have been healed turned white first. Now it’s creeping from nails up fingers a little faster. And the other spots are growing on hands. Very tan so noticeable
