How Can I Possibly Put On Sunblock Every 20-30 Mins?

Greetings,
I have a pool, even when not swimming it seems
Impossible to apply SB so frequently.
The cost will be monumental and that’s all I’ll be doing, putting on SB.
So I then to stay indoors and go out when the sunsets.
The SB gets in my eyes and I hate the way it feels
On my skin.
I’m a 59 year old grandmother and was diagnosed 3
Years ago.
My mom’s father had vitiligo, it looks like my 30
Year old daughter has a spot coming…,
All this is too challenging….,

Sincerely Me

Protopic (Tacrolimus) 0.1% Use In Children

Protopic (Tacrolimus) 0.1% Use In Children

Hi my son (8) has been having UVB treatment for vitiligo for about 6 months now with good effect.
The dermatologist has prescribed him Protopic to use alongside the UVB treatment, but everything I can find about it says this concentration shouldn't be used in children under 16yrs and I don't really know what the side effects might be.

Has anyone else used this treatment with there child?
Thanks

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
