Hey there. I have been suffering from vitiligo since i was 14. I'm now 16. I have it covering my neck and parts of my face. The day i was diagnosed i started Uvb light treatment. For a while that was successful and i began to repigment in places. I had this treatment twice a week, but with school and other commitments it was hard to get all the way to the other side of town for treatment twice a week. I kept going once a week, on weeks when i could make it to the dermatologist. To cover up my vitiligo i used dermablend. This provided good coverage but ruined my clothes and was heavy and sticky. I have just recently started using microskin. I'm interested to hear other peoples stories, remedies and coverups. Especially from young people like me. I'm also interested to hear from anyone else who uses microskin.
