Well, here it is at last - my first blog. Yes, I am a blogging virgin! I've been putting off getting started with this. But because new stuff on vitligo is surfacing all the time it makes more sense to use this medium rather than keeping on adding more and more pages to my website.
It's been a couple of years now since I started seeing new pigment appearing in my very many white patches. In that time my whole body and face have gone from 80% de-pigmented to 95% re-pigmented. That's a huge turnaround and one I never expected to happen because all my life I had been told that there was no cure for vitiligo and all my life my skin had done nothing but get worse year in and year out.
The doctors may be right - there is no definitive cure for vitiligo. But I now know that there are treatments that can work. So if you are a vitiligo sufferer, keep your hopes alive!
My name is Caroline.
