Thanks

Alopecia due to hormonal imbalance

Hi there, I am cured of Alopecia Areata now. It was due to a hormonal imbalance. From 2009 to 2012 i was on finesteride 1mg daily, for controlling male pattern baldness, and I stopped it immediately in 2012 feb since i heard it causes sexual side effects , but i had not experienced any side effects.Now. My hairline is receding and my doc put me on finesteride every alternative day and my patches have stopped occurring from the past 4 months

Cannabis oil for alopecia?

There has a been a lot of hype about cannabis oil for the treatment of cancer in the media of late. In fact, I've seen many shows on it on CNN by Dr Sanjeep Gupter where it has literally saved children s lives.

A friend has recommended it to me for Alopecia but i cant find much research about its success rate with auto immune conditions.

Have you heard anything or had any success? Thoughts? I mean,if they are using it to treat cancer successfully, surely it could work for…

The Next Chapter: "Let the Buyer Beware"

This is Michael.  Apologies to anyone who has been trying to reach me and has not received a response.   I split with Follea in Beverly Hills last October.  I am continuing the pursuit of my vision to help women losing their hair achieve their highest form of natural beauty.   I believe that if you are going to help women and children who are losing, or who have lost their hair, be their whole self again, you have to be "all in".  That has been my pursuit for this past 7+ years, and it…

God gave us this disease

The way I see it is that God gave us alopecia to help us learn and grow, he finds that it is necessary for us to have alopecia to learn, and he knows that we are strong enough to handle it, if we weren't strong enough he would not have given it to us. He knows who we are and knows everything that we can handle, some people may have this trial and have a hard time over coming it, others may have an easy time over coming it. EVERYONE HAS TRIALS... It is part of life, it is time that we realize…

If pizza were a man, would you date him?

No matter how dire the circumstances may be, it’s not always easy doing what’s right for you. Ten years ago, I woke up with an autoimmune disease called Alopecia Universalis. A crescent-shaped bald spot appeared behind each of my ears literally over night. Within a year, I lost every hair on my entire body and it’s been pretty much gone ever since.

I've also been searching for a cure ever since. I've gone to several doctors, tried homeopathy, and experimented with my diet. The only…

Dreaming of hair

I've had dreams where I was delighted that my hair had grown back, dreams where I just had long hair again, dreams where I "came out" as having lost my hair, but last night's was a new variation. I dreamed that my hair was just as it is now, and that I was out doing my dream business with no cover on my head. In the dream it was all very easy, as if weird hair was no big deal. A friend in the dream did get me past a security guard by saying, "Stress is bad for her, it makes her hair fall…

Son has AU-apple Cider Vinegar?

Hello everybody...I have a 4 year old son who has Alopecia Universalis. My family and I had never heard of this condition until my son started losing his hair. In the beginning I was in denial because my son loves being outdoors playing with our animals and I thought he had picked up bird mites (we have a lot of chickens he always wanted to be around). Right before his hair loss his head was full of dandruff that concerned me, but the doctor said it was nothing to worry about...a couple weeks… Continue

Why does NOBODY know about alopecia?

I have only had alopecia for around a year, but I went from having just a very small bald patch to losing 90% of my hair. I feel that it does not get enough attention in the medical world because every doctor I have gone to has told me (It could be caused by stress, it could be hereditary, it could be caused by this, it could be caused by that, it could be cured by this, it could be cured by that, etc. ......) I am so thankful that my hair loss is not caused because of treatment for cancer…

10 years of alopecia areata

Hey ladies.

I have decided to start a blog of my journey of suffering from alopecia areata. It has been 10 years since I first discovered my hair loss. I was only 13 when I was at home one day doing my hair when I found a bold spot the size of a tennis ball. I kept it to myself for a month or so before I told my middle sister and made her promise not to tell anyone. I first went to the doctors and then a dermatologist and I tried home remedies and everything you could think of. Within…

My alopecia has prepared me for this

As my 50th birthday approached, I occasionally thought about the fact that much was about to change for me. I struggled with the thoughts of impending possibilities such as weight gain, wrinkles, aches and pains, and the gradual waning of my physical abilities. But I also thought about my journey with alopecia…

Ear infection

I have alopecia totalis and now because I have no hairs in my ears I have an ear infection which does not seem to be going away.  It is like I have been swimming and there is water in my ears and it can be difficult to hear, is this a common thing does anyone know?

Reasons society doesn't talk about alopecia?

I was asked a question by a friend of mine who has her own over 50s blog. Her last blog was about women's hair going grey and her next blog will be about women losing their hair. Until she met me she'd never heard of alopecia. I too had never heard of it before I got it. Then I read somewhere that there are more people with alopecia than there are people with red hair. To me that was amazing.

I would love to hear others thoughts about why alopecia isn't well known. Is it because most…

Baffled and confused

Hi All,

I would love for some input and recommendation.

- Following days, hair was coming out in clumps washing, dry combing, and even randomly.

- Went to another dermatologist on Christmas Eve and received corticosteroid shot and got blood work done just to ensure…

Frontal fibrosing alopecia - help

Good afternoon. My name is Lori, and I have been losing hair for close to 5 years. It started in 2010 as a tiny patch above my ear - that my hair dresser saw. Then that got bigger, and the same thing happened on the other side (above ear). I am still to this day, able to "hide" it, as I have a bob haircut, and unless the wind blows, or my hair is wet - you cannot see it. Recently, I went to my derm, and asked if she thought it would stop. She said I had some follicular erythema along the…
