Most people think Michael Jackson changed his skin color -in fact when he started getting vitiligo spots on his body, he used make-up to cover them. Unfortunately the vitiligo spread on his body was so large that eventually he didn't have much natural pigment left. This is when he changed the make-up so that he covered the natural-pigmented spots with 'white' make-up, and so he became entirely 'white-skinned'.

By the way, I'm sorry for my english guys..I hope you can understand.

Yes - and much more easily! It is recommended for vitiligo patients to use sun tan lotion all the time when outside, but I think it's a bit exaggerated. My skin never burns, even though I spend lots of time outside exposed to sun at summer.

I think so too, and I'm trying to get used to it. So far it's just been impossible for me to not think about it. But I'm trying, and I hope one day I will be able to just ignore it totally.

All depends on how you take it yourself. I'm lucky since for now a t-shirt and shorts cover most of it, and no one ever notices it. But I don't go swimming to public places, neither do I take my shirt away at summer.

Basically anything that makes me take off clothes is so hard to do. You have no idea how much people can stare. :P
