I'm a 29 year old female and I recently found out I had vitiligo about 2 months ago. It first started as a small patch on my face, I didn't think anything of it since I'm always in the sun until it started to spread. I have a darker complexion and the white patches are starting to spread more and more. They're around my eyes, on my chin, and on my cheeks. I've noticed a spot on my back and a few more spots forming on my stomach. I am not one that is obsessed with my looks, I've always been one that is confident with what I was given. But this, this is a hard pill to swallow. I can't stop starring at it, it's taking over my life, all I do is think about it. I am paranoid and constantly putting make up on. I don't feel comfortable being around others without make up. I am extremely self-conscious. When I first found out I had it, I broke down and started crying. I felt empty and hopeless. Reading posts of people saying they've had success with getting rid of it gives me a little hope and piece of mind. My Dr. Prescribed me with an ointment called Tacrolimus, has anyone had any success with this? Are there any other suggestions? I know this post is all over the place, but these are the thoughts that have been haunting me for the past two months. I try and not let it get to me, but it's a constant struggle. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!!
