Water Polo

Water Polo

Hello, I was wondering if anyone here with Vitiligo plays waterpolo. My son was diagnosed in January. And he loves waterpolo he’s played for years.

Vitiligo And Vitamin D

Vitiligo And Vitamin D

just curious -- since I am one of the 99% lost pigment and incredibly sensitive to sun and avoid it 99% of the time -- anyone else in this situation? do you have to stay on top of D levels with supplements regularly or just expose yourself anyway?

Vitiligo/Lupus

Vitiligo/Lupus

I have Vitiligo and just got diagnosed with Lupus. Does anyone here have them both. How do you deal with them? If I am going to be honest. I put it in God’s hands, but I am afraid.

A MyVitiligoTeam Member said:

Hi Jennette ! Don’t afraid God is in control 🙏 I was diagnosed in 2015 with Lupus and Vitiligo, for me it has not been easy but now we have to live with the condition and take care of ourselves.

What's the best makeup concealer for your hands? I used Smart Cover before, but apparently, they stopped making that product. I currently have Keromask Full Coverage Concealer, but it comes off way to easy.
