"Have just got to the stage of deciding to get a wig. My hairline has now receded by about 4-5 centre meters so it is rather noticeable!! Has been getting worse for about 6 years and has got the point whe I am sick of being stared at. Have always…"
"I actually stopped using anything except tea tree oil about 2 months ago- I couldn't tolerate the medications at all- after I stopped the medications, I was just getting steroid shots along my hairline and eyebrows every month at the…"
"Thank you sallylwess, I think, well this is happening for me anyway- that this FFA can bog one down and everything else goes to the wayside once you start getting involved with treatment and wigs and hairpieces and most of all the sadness, for what…"
"Minter, I like your idea of a make-up
lesson. I do wear a foundation that evens
out along the hair line and the rest of
my face. I do think there might be some
other suggestions a professional upscale
make-up artist could help with."
"Cheryl, it is awesome that your topper has treated you so well, especially on your exotic travels!

"Sally, Jacq, thanks for sharing- I am finding it hard to convince myself that I need hair, it is such a big step and an expensive step. But going for a consultation costs nothing and I will learn a lot, so it can't hurt I guess.…"
"I got one when I could no longer feel comfortable about the appearance of my hair. I also have a high forehead anyway, and I hated that the shiny spot was visible and that one could see the red inflammation on the hairline. I probably could…"
"Leni, this whole thing is frustrating for sure! I think, I hope as this becomes more well known, that when women or men, present themselves to doctors with these symptoms-that it will be diagnosed earlier and especially with the skin problems get…"
"Thanks Jacq, I hope it is getting better for you, it is bad enough on my arms, I couldn't imagine it on the legs, its a horrid feeling!
