Recent research suggests that people who - like me - have brown eyes are more likely to have vitiligo than those with blue or grey eyes, which is quite intriguing. The same study also found that vitiligo sufferers are less likely to develop skin cancer. This is at least some compensation for those of us who suffer from this troublesome and psychologically distressing skin condition. As I have been steadily re-pigmenting for the past 3 years (for which I am of course extremely grateful) I can only assume that my risk of melanoma will have returned to normal. Seems like something of a mixed blessing for all of us!
A vitiligo blogger since 2011. My name is Caroline. I had vitiligo for nearly 50 years before finding an effective treatment. I created this blog to share my experiences with others affected by this skin condition.
