    My daughter is in the process of getting checked for vitiligo. The doctor said they form in triangle-ish like shapes. Go back to the doctor and explain your worries. I can't stand it when the dr says it's not this or that... What the heck is it then!!?

      She is 6. She was born with blue and lighter than her skin color spots, which were taken to be birthmarks and Mongolian spots. She has Celiac's and because of this I worried about her getting vitiligo, which can happen to some Celiac suffers. I always asked the doctor about the spots and she said not to worry. I noticed her nose a couple of months ago had a light spot, 2 weeks later she another and 1 on the side of her mouth. I noticed her light spots from birth were getting lighter and new there were new ones.

      The dr said to wash her with Selsun Blue, because there is a fungal thing that can cause the spots, which is no biggie. I would suggest to you, like I am going to do, is to ask the doctor for a referral to the dermatologist. Although your child may be to young to tell, always keep checking and let the doctor know for record keeping.

      Allah Almighty has lightened the patches and I am feeling good about it. I prayed day and night.. Now I just want it to go away I will soon go for one more check up than I will check with a dermatologist soon.. Feeling somewhat relieved..

    My sine is 4 months old and started developing white patches, my mum suffers with vitiligo so my gut told me what it was, I took him to the docs and they told me the same, it's not vitiligo as he's too young. I wasn't happy with how they dismissed me so found a vitiligo specialist in London and took him for an appointment privately and although they don't see it much in babies confirmed my worst nightmare.

    As he is so young there is not much they can do, I reseated online morning and night and I've gone down the natural root.... I've been using a mix of extra Virginia coconut oil with pure aloe vet and a few drops of almond oil rubbing this on he's skin twice a day as well as giving him Multi vitimins every morning. So far I haven't noticed any new patches I I think I'm seeing a slight improvement with the ones he has although I've been told to wait at least 3 months. There have been a lot of success stories in this method and it's worth a try. I really know how your feeling, it's heartbreaking x

      I am seeing white apots on my 10month old son. I fear it is vitiligo though the doctor said to ignore it. Jusg wanted to find out if your sons patches have repigmented. Are you still giving vitamins??.

      Hello dear friend, sorry to hear the message. I have ever been a vitiligo patient, but I was cured now in a hospital of China. Here I took traditional Chinese medicine and had no side effect. So I think u have a try and maybe your daughter's vitiligo can also be cured. I wish. Good luck.

    My niece had the same issue and her marks were visible from 6 months. though my brother was frantic, he didnt give any chemical medicines to her. the doctor had explained that it was an autoimmune condition and since children that young dont have a fully functional immunity they could be vulnerable. she is 7 now and though intially her spots grew they didnt become any larger. But as she turned 6, she started getting more spots and thats when my brother started checking for alternatives. He was referred to a doctor who prescribed herbal and homeopathic remedies called pigmento and Vitiligease Formula. The prodcuts are wonderful, natural.. my niece's skin has improved tremendously since then.
