"Because if the way its presenting, more than likely AA. MPB is much, much slower and covers a much larger area. If you're truly concerned, check with a dermatologist."

MPB or Alopecia Areata?

Hi everyone, I've had Alopecia Areata for about 13 or 14 years now.  Initially, I lost about 90% of my hair, but since that first year, I've had some pretty great regrowth (I'd say at any given moment I have about 80% of my hair, so it's not particularly noticeable except to myself).  This past year though, I noticed hair on the top of my head was thinning, and then just found a pretty big bald spot back towards my cowlick.  The spot is a little misshapen, maybe 2 inches by 1 inch, and the…See More

"Alopecia is an auto immune disorder, so naturally your immune system will be out of whack. See a dermatologist who specializes in auto immune disorders since you'll probably need over the counter medication. Part of the problem I experienced…"

Christopher Blackett replied to Emily Naples's discussion 27 and covered up
"While I disagree with Lee, it's her opinion. I don't think she should have voiced that particular thought on a forum for bald people trying to cope with alopecia, but there is a stigma against bald people. I often found it hard to find the…"

Christopher Blackett replied to Emily Naples's discussion 27 and covered up
"Don't be ashamed of your reaction. There's no right way to respond to alopecia. Don't let baldness define you, so your reaction is a perfectly reasonable one. But you'll want to prepare yourself for when the time comes when…"

Christopher Blackett replied to Tanya Stone's discussion Steroid injections
"I don't believe that steroid injections can cause hairloss. But pulling at your hair and stressing about it can! I know it's hard, but once you start worrying and stressing, it all goes downhill. My first advice is to stop pulling at your…"

Christopher Blackett replied to Cheryl, Co-founder's discussion Being transformed by the renewal of your mind
"I think alopecia is a terrible thing to cope with, but also quite beautiful. All the petty problems of life seem unimportant, and I know that I initially went through a phase of self-consciousness and depression, but once I accepted the condition,…"

"No problem! That run'll take things off your mind. Just to clarify, do you have AA or is it totalis? From the patchy description it sounds like it could be areata, in which case I'm positive that if you stay calm and not too stressed out…"

Christopher Blackett replied to Laura Adams's discussion New treatment must be just around the corner?
"Now that we know the gene, a cure shouldn't be that far (or at least treatment that isn't just voodoo skepticism or temporary). I predict within the decade we'll all have our hair back. Seeing as it's a tremendously rich…"

"Hi, I've had alopecia for 8 years now, and unfortunately, it's a seemingly incurable disease. I lost my 95% of my hair in the first attack, but I've been able to maintain a nice 85% of hair since then, which is unnoticeable to anyone…"

Christopher Blackett replied to Greg's discussion 1st derm appointment over
"Great approach. I've had alopecia for eight years, and letting people know about it has been the hardest part. However there is hope! I lost about 95% of my hair the first bout, as well as hair on my arms and legs. After the first attack…"
