What Other Conditions Did You Get After Getting Vitiligo?

What Other Conditions Did You Get After Getting Vitiligo?

I’m wondering what other conditions people got after being diagnosed with vitiligo. Or before for that matter. I’ve seen some discussions of psoriasis. What other conditions did you get? Did they come before or after the vitiligo?

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 pray this doesn’t seem intrusive to anyone. So if… read more

Do Most People With Vitiligo Have Hashimoto’s?

Do Most People With Vitiligo Have Hashimoto’s?

I was just diagnosed with V last week after having the pigmentation problem for a probably 5 or so years. Earlier this year, I requested a full thyroid panel because I was experiencing hypothyroid-esque symptoms. The only thing to come back abnormal (and it was very mild) was my T3. It was low. Therefore, they diagnosed me with Euthyroid Sick Syndrome. I’ve been taking 10mcg of Cytomel and have since felt better
Fast forward to this last week. The Dermatologist (first one I’ve ever seen) tells… read more

I want to ask that should I go for COVID-19 vaccination ? My main concern is that the vaccine will make the immune system more enhanced to fight against corona virus so I think it will also effect Vitiligo
Kindly answer
Thank you

Has Anyone Else Ordered A Home Phototherapy "machine"?

Has Anyone Else Ordered A Home Phototherapy "machine"?

Dr. Lim just approved this for me as it is 40 minutes to treatment each way and getting harder with work. I am just wondering if it will be a big machine as well, how would I operate it alone, and where would I put it?

Would love to hear from someone who has done this.

And - I am not even sure yet if my insurance will cover it yet.

Have a great day!
