Hello, I am an African American female and I noticed that my hands are discolored at the beginning of my fingers and the knuckles. I had a biopsy done for Vitiligo and the results were negative. It does show that there is a decrease in melanin pigment in the epidermis. My dermatologist can't seem to figure out whats causing the problem and seems to think the problem is internally. Do you have an idea of what I am dealing with or what type of specialist I can see to solve this problem. Is there anything I can use to restore pigment in my hands. Help because this is very stressful. Thank you
