White Patches : Is it really vitiligo?
few months back I came up with a rash on my neck...it was red, sometimes itchy, scaley, dry & quite red. i've always suffered from eczema on my neck so i put it down to that. I used doublebase which is just a moisturiser but it didn't clear up. i never went to the Doctors about it thinking it was nothing but last month white patches have appeared in the exact same place this rash was.
i finally went to my GP and she gave me Daktarin as she thought it could be a fungal infection and told me to use it for 4 weeks. but nothing happened.
So yesterday i went to see her again and she told me it must be vitiligo. she gave me a leaflet on it and gave me Betnovate RD cream to see if that brings any pigmentation back.
the only thing is i'm not completely sure if it is vitiligo? she did no tests and based it solely on appearance. its on my neck where my collarbones meet and no where else. i have no history of vitiligo in my family. when you look really closely you can see tiny specks of colouring in some areas.
my doctor wasn't particulary helpful and i pratically ran out in tears. is there anything i can do?
