My name is Jeannette Kershof, I’m 51 years old and I have vitiligo since my 28th. I discovered white spots on my hands and went to the GP. At first, I received an ointment for mold from him, but when that did not help, he found that it was supposed to be vitiligo. “And there’s nothing to do about it, you just have to learn to live with it,” he told me.
About 5 years later I had moved and I met my new GP. One of the first things he asked me was whether I did something about my vitiligo. On my surprised answer that there was nothing I could have done, he sent me to the SNIP (Foundation of Dutch Institute for Pigment Disorders). This is a specialized institute at AMC (Academic Hospital) Amsterdam where dermatologists work with a high degree of vitiligo knowledge. Here I have undergone several treatments with varying degrees of success. Some treatments I followed were mini-grafting, UVB exposure and the Cutivate, Emovate and Protopic creams.
Because the treatments did not bring the desired result, I went to the internet to get a treatment that would yield a result. Novitil seemed to me the most promising and I was going to use it. And my pigment came back in many places. Especially on my knees, legs and face, the pigment comes back quite well. Hands and feet remain a problem.
I am very pleased with Novitil and would like to offer other people the opportunity to use this beautiful product. Novitil is a product of Dermabest in Canada and has shown good results for over 15 years.
Many spots have become brown again, and if there develops a new spot, I will immediately start with Novitil in that area. Now the new spots in my face slowly disappear. So I’m still very happy with Novitil.
I regularly talk to other vitiligo patients, which I think is very nice and useful. I hope that I can continue to help people with this website and via email and phone.
