If you have vitiligo – or you know someone who does – we are here to help. These days, there's so much information available about vitiligo in so many different formats, it can be a little overwhelming. That’s why we have put together some simple yet effective advice to help you manage your vitiligo, put people around you at ease, and live a more active, fulfilling life.
The treatment options for vitiligo have undergone a sea of change over the last years, and dermatologists are now in a much better position to manage this disease than in the past. We'll provide you with a starting point for finding the information you need to successfully navigate your new diagnosis.
Vitiligo can affect many parts of your life and your family—but it doesn't have to take over your life. Many people have dealt with vitiligo while remaining in the public eye, maintaining a positive outlook, and having a successful career.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
