So I am thirteen and I got aa at the end of last school year.  I am a freshman in high school and I was wondering if anyone has any good ways that I can cover up my bald spots.  Also, Does anyone else's spots get sore sometimes?

Hello everyone.

Im newly took while they thought for a long time i had AGA..i present that way i have christmas tree type part...turns out a Dr finally did a biopsy and have AA--so i am confused about my hair seems slow and steady and not looks like AA at all maybe very small patches like eraser head sized but many. Not clean circles either..I have a very tiny bit of one eyebrow mising--looks almost undetectable like i plucked a few wrong hairs (didn't)..i also notice a lot of white hairs on my 45 i assumed they were grey...

I am confused about how to proceed with treatment--this has been going on for over 5 years i would say and it's not very noticeable yet--but very thinned out on top..What i dont understand is people talk as if it happens very quickly...Also I have miniaturization similar to AGA--and these hairs short cycle.. My Dermatologist wants to do shots---but would a pill be better since its spread out??

well its been a while since ive used this platform. For some odd reason, without medication and without care, ive experienced full regrowth for two years now. Dont know why or how and i dont care, with or without it im still me. So a shout out to others who have and know the emotional stress barring this condition, personally ive realized character is far more important than the outer shell and still today i truly believe the most beautiful people are those that are the smile no matter what!!

It has been a while since I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. I notice every time I stress out I tend to have new bald patches. I like my wigs but they tend to be very hot.

My daughter was diagnosed with AA in 2010.

Just letting everyone here know about a book I'm working on.  It's really starting to take shape, and I'm looking for additional stories from men, women and children in all stages of hairloss.  

I've been featuring people who have made a difference with their experience by making choices to do something better, or to living up to their true potential. 

If you'd like to be part of this project, feel free to check out my website for "Head-On, Stories of Alopecia".  It can be seen at  You can also see it on facebook under the "Head-On..." title.  I would love it if you could "like" and "share" it so it will continue to encourage more people to share their stories.

The alopecia community has always been so supportive of one another, and my hope is that word of this project will spread like wildfire. I look forward to hearing your story.
