Hey, and thanks in advance for any help or infomation you can offer.
Recently, I've noticed I have been losing pigment from the skin on my fingers, mainly in small patches.
It's particularly concerning as a younger sibling suffers from vitiligo.
Any help or infomation is incredibly welcome, and if you require anymore infomation don't hesitate to ask!
I haven't visited a dermatoligist nor my local GP, due to the fact it's not very widespread at the moment. There are only three or four patches and they are reasonably small. I was just curious if there was any other possible reason for such loss.
Thanks for your speedy response.
I don't know if there is something else that could cause loss of pigment, but since you have a family history of Vitiligo, that is probably what it is. I would go to the doctor sooner, rather than later. Most treatments for most things (not just this) work better the earlier you start.
Perhaps you can even get into some kind of study or clinical trial. This seems rare enough that they would probably be looking for candidates. However, that's only if you are interested in doing something like that. Just a thought.
