Hi all, iv been reading some of your vitiligo posts & really didn't realise how many do have it. No one in my family does & they just don't seem to understand how I feel. I am 24 and am very self conscious. I hate that I can't feel comfortable with my body knowing people are looking at me. I started getting it about 3 years ago & it's getting worse every year. My hands & arms are my worst patches as I can't cover them up. I haven't been on holiday or in a bikini since I had it. I'm now due to go in a few weeks and am really worried about putting a bikini on and what I'm going to look like. I have bought cover ups for over my bikini & plenty of sun cream & I feel it's in treatable so I just have to deal with it, but it really is making me worried & stressed & I don't know how to cope. I hope someone has dealt with this too & has some positive information on something I could do or use to help. Thanks in advanced
