Question Does Novak Djokovic suffer from vitiligo?

Vitiligo, that skin discoloring condition that Michael Jackson had. Look at these photos and tell me what you think. The spots are on his arm and neck. These are not photo damaged, the spots can be seen in other pictures on Daylife.

I saw that!

I wonder if any of these tennis players worry about skin cancer?

It seems so. I've noticed the neck spots in the live broadcast too.

It could be sun damage. It could be a fungus.

Whatever, don’t think it’s going to affect his tennis.

Default Re: Is Novak Djokovic suffering from vitiligo?

apparently it can be caused by steroid use. I'm not sure if there's scientific evidence for this or whether it's a conclusion people reached after watching legendary juicer sammy sosa's skin lighten over the years

If it is, it's an autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune diseases are idiopathic, which means: no one knows the real cause.
I think we shouldn't joke on this stuff.

And since he already has gluten sensitivity, he obviously has an inclination for autoimmune diseases. Not nice

Skin autoimmune diseases also have a pattern of starting on limbs first, then on the rest of the body.

I really think it's not something that we should joke about.

Tinea versicolor due to candida overgrowth is more common in Coeliacs.

I knew a person as a kid who had Vitiligo, the spots were more prominent and really looked patchy. This looks more like just a skin infection from the sweat/stress.
