In my never ending quest to find good news about my health, I'm wondering about vitiligo, and whether or not it's showing up on my skin.
A few weeks ago, after spending some time in the sun, I noticed white blotches or various sizes on my forearms. At the time, I chalked it up to scarring from a particularly bad case of poison ivy I had about 2.5 years ago. The blotches aren't that big, they look like the size of a scab that previously occupied that area.
But now I'm wondering if thats 100% the cause, because neither I or my wife remember seeing these blotches last summer.
Would immunotherapy triggered vitiligo go after areas like this first perhaps? I can't seem to find any info specific to this, and my apologies if this is a ridiculous question. I'm going through a tough time of progression 5 months after my first ipi/nivo infusion and looking for any sign of a response. I've noticed a few new grey hairs in my beard too, but that could be from just about anything!
