Is it vitiligo?

Postby spottypjs on Mon Jun 10, 2019 4:00 pm

I have had what I thought was vitiligo on my arm for a long time. The doctor told me it was vitiligo however it is actually patches of darker skin, rather than patches of lighter skin. However, when I questioned the doctor over this, he just said it was vitiligo. Any idea?

Dear Spottypjs

Thank you for your question. It is difficult to give accurate advice without examining your skin. I would therefore recommend that you see either a GP with a special interest in dermatology or a Dermatologist.

Best wishes
