I think my 7yr old daughter has vitiligo

Please help, I think my 7 yr old gilor has vitiligo,facial area, nose and cheeks. She does have eczemam but never had a brekout on her face. Two years ago she developed alopcecia (hairloss) and is just finally growing all her hair back. Now i am scared we wll have to deal with this and how it will affect her self esteem. I feel so helpless. Our appt with her dermatologist is in mid november. has anyone dealt with this and is there anythign i can do? We are medium skin so it is noticeable but im scared it will get worse.

  • My friend Corey has vitiligo but it's not on his face and there really isn't anything that can be done other than skin bleaching and you DON'T want to do that

  • I don't think anything can be done until that visit to her dermatologist according to what I've read here. 

    What Treatment Options Are Available? 

    I do hope the treatments help.  GL
