    Hey guys, wanted to know if there is any other guys out there who have vitiligo who might be willing to post/trade pics. I've got it in the groin area, so it covers about 60% of my "meat and potatoes"...enjoy talking to others who have it as well

    i think there are ointments and lotions available for the treatment of vitiligo. My aunt is a phytotherapist, and as far as i know, she was treating a vitiligo patient not too long ago.
    Are you using anything?

    From what I read, it is a combination of an ointment that sensitizes skin to UV light, and UV light exposure that stimulates the melatonin cells to get active again.

    These cells stop producing for a variety of reasons (many are not known). In many cases, they can be re-actived, and in other cases, the cells are dead.

    My wife has it on her genitals, in about the same percentage as you.
    It has never made one bit of difference, to either of us.
