I wondered if anyone has any experience of travelling through Customs in Australia or New Zealand with alopecia. My daughter's passport photo was taken a couple of years ago before her hair fell out. However, we are travelling from NZ to OZ soon and she has chosen to travel without her wig. I just had a terrible vision of being stopped at customs and them not believing her identity! If anyone has any experience or advice I'd love to hear it. Thanks!

Hi all, My story began when I was 11-12 years of age,(1979-80), this was the first time I suffered from Alopecia. Back then it was called Alopecia Nervosa Type A. At the time I was a child actor. An Australian film I did called Mystery Island (1980), shows the hair loss in certain scenes. My hair did grow back after a few years. Now 35 years later I am experiencing alopecia (areata) hair loss again. It seems to be far more aggressive although I did not shave my head back then as I have done on this occasion. All signs show that it is the areata variety although the hair loss is also on my chin and around my mouth,(the goatee area).
