Wedding planning could be really so stressful as bride develops Vitiligo days before her wedding.
Kandice Benford, 32, is sharing her story about how she developed a severe case of vitiligo across her face right before her wedding day.
The disease is an autoimmune condition that causes a person’s own immune system to attack cells that make pigment in their skin thereby leading to loss of skin colour.
Kandice Bedford, an hairdresser told SELF that she once had a bout of Vitiligo when she was in college.
“It appeared on my finger and my doctor said it would go away,” she recalls. “It did—it just came and went.” Bedford says she would have little spots that would show up on her skin “here and there” but they all were tiny and would simply go away over time.
This was brought about when her fiance in May was critically ill. She was worried about him and the wedding.
Her doctors believe the stress may have triggered the condition.
