Camryn replied to chris_s's discussion Tofacib - commerically available topical xeljanz Tofacitinib cream
"A foreign company with nothing to back up its legitimacy seems a scary prospect as a place to order any kind of medicine from. How could you be sure it was genuinely Tofacitinib?"

"Just to add, you've probably read online that DPCP immunotherapy has been combined with oral Fexofenadine (Allegra) with some successful results for alopecia sufferers. Interesting in terms of your own experiences with allergy treatment of a…"

Trying Everything at Once

I had my first appointment with the dermatologist today. He confirmed my GP's diagnosis of alopecia areata and told me these are difficult cases. Then he gave me kenalog shots to the affected area (with more to come in six weeks), a prescription for Clobex and as well wants me using Creastim and Vivsical professional tablets. The nurse explained they're basically trying everything at the same time. I'm not complaining and will definitely use everything they advised, just wondering if anybody…See More

Camryn replied to Camryn's discussion Alopecia Areata vs Scarring Alopecia
"Do you get a burning feeling with your ophiasis? Or a feeling like your hair is being pulled? I have those sensations pretty much nonstop on top of the itching. I'm at my wit's end - it's so distracting."

Lexi replied to Camryn's discussion Alopecia Areata vs Scarring Alopecia
"I have ophiasis and no rash, but I would imagine one could get a rash with any kind of alopecia ?? And one can have a combination of types of alopecia.  "

Alopecia Areata vs Scarring Alopecia

My GP diagnosed me with alopecia ophiasis at the end of January (just by doing a visual inspection) and so far all my hair loss is below my ears at the back in one huge area but it's been so itchy and also red and rashy for almost two months now that I'm wondering if it could be scarring alopecia instead? I'm seeing a dermatologist next week (finally!) but I'm going absolutely mad with the constant burning and itching. With ophiasis can you get rashy as well or does this sound like something…See More

Camryn replied to K-Dunk's discussion Daughter with Alopecia and results with a product we are trying
"The page on severe hair loss on the Monat website conflates male pattern baldness with alopecia but androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata have different causes requiring different treatments. "

Camryn replied to dreamscometrue's discussion Infections-Candida, Oral infections, any infections. Did you have any chronic infections before starting Xeljanz?
"I'm so sorry about your brother. He was so young. It's good to hear that you're doing well on the Calaguala though. I hope that continues and please do keep me posted."
