My son does.
So long story short I noticed this on Cole and really did not notice or think anything of it. It was summer and he was out running naked or with a diaper. It was not until a friend had sent me a link that I realized that this is serious. So took Cole to the doctor and she said yes and sent us off to a Dermatologists. It took many months to get in of course. So today finally at the Dermatologist and he took one look at Cole and said this kid has Vitiligo he than left to get another Doctor he than came in and said Yep he has Vitiligo. They are now running lab work because Vitiligo, lupus, diabetes, and thyroid are all inter connected. So it is just a matter of time before everything kicks in.
So researching things, odds are when he had his seizure it kicked up Celiac disease and Vitiligo. I only noticed the Celiac because of all the poop coming out of him. The Vitiligo started in the diaper area and has spread to his face and legs, now arms. So far it has not touched the face. Vitiligo is an auto immune disease. So now we are researching that and debating on rather to treat or not. My son is only two we are talking about Steroids. so what if there are side effects, what if things get worse? What if the medicine brings out another auto immune issue? I kinda think we are going to let it be. This is my son and really I think he will be fine. As long as it does not hit the face. We worry about the face area.
So he is not to go out without sun screen as he could burn. And now we sit and wait for lab results. Going for the blood work my son was so good. He sat on my lap and sat there and watched what the nurses were doing, when they poked him he just jumped he never cried. Walking out he was telling everyone boo boo. And no one could touch his boo boo until late tonight.
The pictures are a bit hard to tell. It is actually worse in person.
