An Idea That’s Working
I received this comment today…
Hello everyone, I am from Western New York. The treatments I have been doing, seem to have had a positive change. I am taking folic acid, Vitamins E and C, as well as PABA two to three times a day. In doing this, I have started to get large patches of brown spots.
Good Luck to everyone on our individual searches!!
and wanted to share our email exchanges that followed…
Thanks for your comment today. I have a few questions for you so that when others read your comment they can get a better idea of your situation compared to theirs.
How long you’ve had vitiligo? What is your skin tone? Where are your white patches and which were the first areas to re-pigment? How much of each supplement do you take?
I am 20 years old and i have had it for what would be going on 11 years. My white patches are in the normal areas; my face, behind my ears, chest, under my arms, elbows, knees, starting to go down my legs and my feet. I recently developed it on my hands within the past year. I have patches on my upper arms that are new; they developed around April of this year. After getting a sunburn over the summer, the spots on my upper arms seemed to fill in quite a bit, as well as my chest (around my collar bone area). I take about 15 vitamins a day. The PABA is the one that seems to be working the best in the re-pigmentation process. I go tanning once or twice a week for no more than 5 minutes. My nationalities are half Italian, quarter Ukrainian and quarter German. I look mostly Italian, and Ukrainian. I have olive skin tones so when i tan I do not turn red like most Caucasians, I turn almost black. I tan VERY easily, so when I got this disease I was devastated.
I take 500mg of Spirulina, 300mg of Pantothenic Acid, 500mg Vitamin C, 800 I.U. of E, 2400mg of Folic Acid, 1000mg of fish oil (for my arthritis) and 4100mg of PABA through out the day.
