White spots on penis
Im told i have vitaligo, a rare skin disease that affects like 1% of all people, so naturaly with my bad luck i get it. Got white spots on my elbow but i got that under control with cream but my problem now is my penis. It wouldnt be a worry if there where just a few small spots coz then i get rid of them but its spread over most of my penis leaving a couple of spots left with pigmentation. I was wondering if there was a method or cream or something that doesnt cure it but rather speeds it up instead. I fear that if my girlfriend sees it one day that she get freaked out and it would look less wierd completely white than just mostly with few spots with pigmentation.

Hi there,

I can understand that this is an issue that bothers you. As this is a medical question please post it to our CyberDoc here at Health24. I also think you should consult the doctor who diagnosed your vitiligo in the first place, and also prescribed the creams you use.

As for your girlfriend, if the relationship is worth having then she will treat you with the respect you deserve.
