COVID-19 Vaccination And Vitiligo
A MyVitiligoTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello
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 After COVID-19 Vaccination Noticed Increase Or Flare Up In Their White Spots?
A MyVitiligoTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Vitiligo On Hands
A MyVitiligoTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

Is It Even Worth Using All These Creams And Medicines To Try And Stop The Spread Of Vitiligo?
A MyVitiligoTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Does Vitiligo Spread More Rapidly Due To Hormonal Changes Such As Menopause?
A MyVitiligoTeam Member asked a question 💭

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
