As I mentioned in another post, I had noticed some weird, confetti-like white spots on my face. I don’t know where they came from or what they are from.
I kind of stopped noticing them. Once you live with something for a certain period of time…you simply just stop noticing it. Also, the lighting in my bathroom isn’t the greatest. Either way, I usually wear makeup when I go out unless I’m super lazy.
The other day I went out with my Mom. Since we were already going to be out, I asked my mom if she did not mind taking me to get my eyebrows threaded. Since I’ve been feeling a bit down and out with the transplant being postponed, I thought that perhaps getting my eyebrows threaded would make me feel a bit better. It’s kind of like…putting on really nice clothes and a full face of make up just to go to the grocery store. So when we got to the threading place, the nice lady who was doing the threading mentioned the spots on my face. I didn’t wear makeup since I knew I’d be getting my eyebrows done.
It reminded me of my appointment with the dermatologist back in September. She didn’t know what the spots were, but said that she did not think it was vitiligo. She took me into a dark room and put a black light on my face. Since the spots didn’t glow under the black light…she didn’t think it was vitiligo. Also, she mentioned that the spots would be more blotchy and perhaps bigger as opposed to little confetti like dots.
After having the lady threading my eyebrows mention it, it became more apparent how many there are on my face when I looked in the mirror when I got home.
Note: the bigger white spot on my cheek is just the flash. The tiny white spots is what i was trying to capture in the picture.
This is just a picture of my right cheek, but the spots are all over my head, my chin…everywhere. Has anyone ever heard of or seen anything like this? I haven’t started taking any new medication…but I wonder if its that. My pharmacist looked at all of my medications and did not see anything that would warrant the appearance of such spots on my face…
Oh, I should also mention that these spots appear in one other place. In a spot where…well…a spot that is normally covered up by pants and underwear, and is not open for public viewing (Pun intended with the word ‘public’, if ya know what I mean)
