Any link between Vitiligo and Rosacea?

I have Rosacea and have noticed one pale patch on my arm. Is Rosacea linked to Vililigo?

Thanks for your post. As far as I'm aware there is ins't any strong evidence linking vitiligo to rosacea. Rosacea is not a rare condition (in the US, for example, 16 million people are thought to be affected) and so I would expect some people with rosacea would have other skin conditions, including vitiligo, by coincidence.
