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
I was told this by two doctors that Vitiligo is a fungus -I was also told by a dermatologist that is also associated and related to Hypo Thyroidism -Does anyone else have any information on this ? Are both Autoimmune issues too? Any feedback greatly appreciated
Vitiligo is NOT a fungus!! oh my goodness, a doctor told you that? smh..it's an autoimmune condition. I understand that doctors don't always know everything. In all the 26 years I have had… read more
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 had the two original Pfizer shots, then a Pfizer booster, a Moderna booster, and most recently another Pfizer booster. My vitiligo, which had progressed only very slowly during the 25 years since… read more
I don’t have an answer but it’s a great question-anybody Know?
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

I used a cream called Protopic 0,1%
For the first 3 months it removed a spot on my neck. After a while it stopped working and the spread of my vitiligo started to increase.
I also was recommended to take vitamin D tablets (1000 ICU) and Zinc. I have found that the spread is not reversing or slowing down. Seeing that there actually isn't really a cure, I have come to a point where I have stopped using the creams.
I too have found that nothing works I've learned to deal with it in every spot that I have received begins as a heart and I still have many that look like hearts. I think it's a kiss from God and to… read more
I started menopause 7 years and found out that vitiligo started spreading like wildfire around my ankles, feet, legs and expanded more on my elbows and hands. Has this happened with anyone else? Is there a link between vitiligo and hormone changes?
Yes, I think so. When I first had it, it was during the beginning of menopause. I assumed it was hormones, asking my doctor about it, but they said it would not cause vitiligo, but it happened at… read more
