White hair

I have over 50% hair loss due to AA. There are large amounts of white hair beginning to grow in large amounts. What should I make of it? I also have nummular eczema that appeared a few months before the first hair patch fell out. My allergies got horrible, skin looked like ringworm and pale, and hair fell out in large amounts.See More

Just started a round of shots in my scalp. Anyone know what to expect? We started with a small patch to see how I respond then will do full treatment if I improve. Wish me luck =)

Hi Gabe,
I hope it's a good thing for you. Have you met anyone else with alopecia?
I didn't meet anyone for almost a year, other than this online community.
There are a lot of emotions tied into this thing called alopecia.

HI Gabe,
How are things going with you?
I see you have met Leslie who is a local to you. It would probably be good for you to go to a support group meeting and meet some others going through what you are. I know that this helped me a lot.
