Postby Kezzagreen81 on Mon Jun 10, 2019 1:23 pm

hi there, my family and I have variegate phorpyria and we all have varying stages of vitiligo. we are of white heritage but we have a mixture of pure white smooth patches and also dark patches. is there anything we can do to try and fade them out a bit. my mum and gran had it the worst they looked like maps they had so much on them.

Thank you for your question. You may want to ask to be referred to a dermatologist to see if you can be offered treatment with pimecrolimus cream.

I hope this is helpful.
