  • Look at famous people who have vitiligo such as: Michael Jackson; Doc Hammer; Joe Rogan and Hollie Mary Combs. You see them in magazines, television, movies, clubs and they are not in their homes, crying why did this happen to them. They are out in public, facing the people and showing that they're made of and that's what you should do.
  • If people make fun of you, pay absolutely no attention of them whatsoever. People make fun of other people who are different it is because they are apprehensive, obtuse and envious people who are low of themselves for being so ordinary. They are just jealous of you because they look past the whiteness and see the light inside of you that burns so brightly, that they feel insecure and try to bring you down. Don't let them. Just walk away or pretend that they are nothing.
  • Imagine you are not alone but millions of population of the world is with you in this skin condition.


  • Make sure you wear an umbrella and have all of your skin covered when you are outside in sunny, warm weather. Your skin is quite sensitive with vitiligo.
