I think my son may have Vitiligo to. He is 2 1/2 and like you I know its not the end of the world but i feel devasated. My husband has it too and i've always been pleased that my son seemd to have inherited his tannned skin( my hubby is spanish)but now i've noticed the white mark on his elbow i feel so sad. My hubby's patches have got bigger in the 10 years we've been together and I can honestly say that i barely notice them but the thought of my little one all giraffe like is not a nice one. But as I said its not the end of the world, its not life threatening and they will still be the same inside.(hmm) Keep smiling
