Hello. I am 21 and earlier this year was diagnosed with vitiligo. It has continued to spread on my hands and around my hips and more recently at the corners of my mouth. I was wondering if any one has suffered from hairloss with vitiligo? I was given Lamisil at first as the doctor thought it could be pityriasis versicolor, which it was not. The whole coming to terms with it has been both depressing and stressful so I'm putting it down to maybe just being due to stress. There has never been any early hairloss in the family and I don't think it's genetic as it ties in exactly with the time the vitiligo started to get worse. I've been told by the dermatologist that there is no connection between vitiligo and hairloss but I've heard of some one els who also had the same.
I have started using Protopic cream in the hope that it may stop the vitiligo spreading.
I'm grateful for any advice you may have.
All the best
