how fast?

How fast does vitiligo generally spread? I first noticed some small white patches on my hands a few weeks ago, and since then it has spread significantly on my hands, and on my face (I have two large patches beneath my eyes, and two smallish ones near the corners of my mouth). I also have patches on my body. I don't really know when they appeared, but I have looked at photos of my face and I *know* that I didn't have noticable patches until this month.

It seems awfully quick to me. Everything I've read about vitiligo (and I've read a lot in the 3 days since my diagnosis!) seems to indicate that it progresses a lot slower than mine seems to be.

I'm not terribly worried about it, although the patches on my face make me a little nervous. I am fairly light skinned, but the patches are obvious.
