I have had vitiligo for nearly 10 years. However, it is a very mild case and was not exposed on my face until a few years ago. My dermatologist has put me on a topical cream that doesn’t seem to do much for me. I applied it for three months with little to no improvements. I actually seemed to have more success without the medicine on my face. My case seems to be based on stress. Vitiligo didn’t even break out on my face until I had a breakup with a girl I dated for three years. At the time I was very depressed and the vitiligo became noticeable on my face. Since then I got married and am living a very happy life. However, the vitiligo is still noticeable when I am not dying my beard.
