Hi
This may mean nothing but I've had vitiligo for years and it's strange in that as it developed, it did so in a symmetric pattern...so if I got a white patch on right wrist, a left one developed also. Everywhere a patch appeared, a matching one appeared on the other side. Not sure if this relevant, GP will know instantly.

Amber, your GP will need to refer you? Just to note tho', if you are on the pill, it could be a form of chloasma but do see your GP.

Hi, I have a white spot on the left side of my face near my ear and I think it is increasing. Because I have asian skin, it is more obvious as it is contrast against my natural skin tone. Can someone please recommend a very good dermatologist in dublin who specializes in these things.

I went to Gran Canaria last year and it was very hot. I did get sunburned..mainly on back and shoulders but shortly afterwards I noticed little while spots on various parts of both arms. This year my arms have tanned a little in the odd bit of sun we have had but these dots of white areas have remained white. Do you think this is vitiligo? Strangely, recently a number of my eyelashes on one eye have gone completely grey/white and in past week or so a number of my top eyelashes on same eye have also turned completely white. Is this just coincidence or could it be vitiligo?
