Lyme sick -
Dont freak out. 10%-20% of the population now has some autoimmune conditions. Vitaligo wont kill you or start Lupus.
Certain genes just make some conditions more possible. Bad diets will make possible autoimmune more probable - look at diabetes obesity for an example.
In that blue link from a HW Lupus post: "Since it is the same gene as the lupus one, I thought that people here might be interested and maybe, if you want to preserve your pigment, avoid phenol containing hair dyes. I'm doing research to find a good list of those if anyone is interested..."
Phenol is a chemical in MOST hair dyes. Autoimmune conditions don't like chemicals. Chemical are inflammatory. Vitaligo is autoimmune; if you have it, avoid phenal.
