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?
I have Hashimoto’s (hypothyroidism) which developed after vitiligo. Had eczema before vitiligo but it resolved by teen years and never returned.
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.

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
Have now vitiligo had lupus thyroid arthritis and sorgjens now this ahhh hate vitiligo hate it
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 have crohns and vitiligo
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
