  3. I also have vitiligo and I used to cry and just wanted it to disapear. But know I know that this is what makes me unique. Every patch is different and special on its own. Normal skin is just boring. I want to show my skin, i go out in the sun to darken the skin around so that the white patches will really show. I now love myself, but I used to know how it felt to just want to get rid of it. To know you and your skin will always be different, it can be really pain at first and I hope if you, who reads this and maybe has a problem with this condition,that you can solve it. If you need help, I am here for you. I can support you and I will love your white patches, because their are beautiful.

  9. My brother and I have vitiligo. We are very lucky as to where we have our vitiligo. My brothers is on his left foot and left knee, he has had this since he was around 10 years old. He had medium dark skin and it looks like he has dropped milk on his foot and knee. How ever I also have it but it is on the left side of my cheek on my face and goes to the corner of my lip and upto my eye in the left side. I also have it on my crotch on the left side too. I have had it since I was around 8 years old and it has gotton slightly bigger over the years. However I am very pale so its isn't too noticable at all unless you look at it and know it is there. What I find strange is that my brother and I have different dads, mine is English and his is Yugoslavia. I found this video very informative. If anyone else has any information on this I would like to know as we have been told it could have something to do with our immune system and well being. Thank you in advance.

  11. I have vitiligo, myself. What helped me very good is a cream named Xemodan. It pigmentate the white parts again.
    There are many things out there that don't help but Xemodan has already
    helped me and many others! There are also testimonials on YouTube. If
    you know someone with Vitiligo…you can help him much with this

  12. Many things can make Vitiligo worse….
    Gentects can make you more Vulnerable….
    However Vitiligo is Chemically induced that causes superoxides to attack the fatty cell membranes that surrounds skin cells….
    The term auto immune simply means that the body is trying its best to get rid off highly dangerous elements by either isolating it and destroying it….
    Chemically induced Vitiligo has been a direct result of exposure to toxic chemicals in a wide variety of products such as hair sprays, cosmetics, vics ointment, lubricating oils, rubber, nylon etc etc…. Specific chemicals have also already been identified but there could be others as well…
    The 1st step towards recovery wd be to identify possible sources of contamination and aggravation. 2) Also avoid other sources of superoxides that makes it much much harder for your body to recover, such as Chlorine and Chloramines in drinking and bathing and swimming pool water, (these chemicals have the ability to directly enter into fatty cell membranes, alter proteins and change cell DNA. Something you probably never heard before. This is why these chemicals are effectively used to kill and destroy tiny microorganisms such as bacteria and Fungi. But do you think our human cells get away unharmed?) and PCB's and EDC' such as plastics, household detergents, soaps, perfumes, etc etc…
    And lastly, to eat a healthy wholefood plant based diet with plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. Sounds daunting, but it can be done.
    So, all in all, dont get too comfortable in your ZEBRA stripes! There is still hope!
    Bless you!!
