I know there are children here who have Celiac, and some with Thyroid issues. In the past year, my son's knees, fingers, ankles, and elbows, and every place he's ever had a mosquito bite and scratched have slowly had the white patches of skin become more evident. I wasn't aware, until we went to visit our new endo, that it was also autoimmune . I was wondering if there were other children, or siblings who have this also. I know it won't hurt him. It's just one more emotional suitcase he is going to have to carry around; breaks my heart.
