Eamonn I know your skin is sensitive but why not just try and get a little natural
sun with the weather been so nice at the moment.
Because I used a skin whitening cream in 2006-7 my skin is extremely sensitive to the sun. When I tried tanning on bad advice from a former friend in 2010, I ended up with forehead lines/wrinkles (known as photoaging) for which I had laser treatment last week. I have to be very careful around the sun. And I didn't get a tan by the way when I tried.
A doctor did a biopsy on my skin in early 2012 and concluded there is almost no melanin (tan) there but the melanocytes that produce the tan are there. He suggested UVB narrowband treatment. So that's another option I could try. It seems to help Vitiligo patients.
