I've had LS for such a long time...I don't have it on the vulva. But do have it on the top of both my feet ankles and chins. I was wondering is there anyway to get rid of the white patchy look? I've avoided wearing shorts,dresses and other types of clothing just so people don't see it. I would really like to feel like I have somewhat of a normal life and enjoy summer days in shorts and flip flops so if anyone can recommend a way to get rid of the white patchy look and suggest some things i would really appreciate it. I'm now 35 turning 36 and would really like to wear certain clothing without being judged or looked at like I have some contagious disease.

    Hi Tina, just asking but did you have it confirmed that it is L's on those areas. I also have vitiligo which is also a immune disorder,

      Yes. The dermatologist confirmed it with a biopsy. I've been through lots growing up. Even got kicked out of school and wasn't allowed back in until I had a doctor's note to prove it was not contagious to any of the other students. I wouldn't really care about scarring, I just want the white patches to go away.

      Hi Tina,

      have ver you asked for light therapy through the skin department?  I had severed excema and an element of fungal involved all over it cleared it about ninety five percent.

      Yeah I did a tropical soak and stood under light I found it actually made it worse.
