About Me:
I was diagnosed with Alopecia areata by my Doctor February 16th. I haven't been to a dermatologist yet.. was referred, but I guess it takes a while to get an appoitment here.
I started out just noticing the one patch (about the size of a toonie) while scratching my head. Later on that night, I noticed another one the size of a dime, at the nape of my neck. Acouple weeks after that I noticed a really small one under my larger one... almost looks like a hair part, but it's round. In my larger spot there is hair growth... some blonde, some brown.. and feels to be more each day. As excited as Iam.... I know alopecia is unpredictable so iam trying not to get my hopes up.
Iam so happy to have found a place like this, it's comforting knowing I am not alone.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia areata
Are you age 18 or older?

Hi Meghan, sorry it took me so long to reply. I definitely think losing my eyebrows was the worst part. The eyelashes stunk because I would get stuff in my eyes, but it was such a pain to draw on my eyebrows even. I would get so frustrated some days. It was hard to get them level and looking the same. If they wouldn't have started growing - I was ready to get them tattooed on! It definitely took me a long time each morning! I am so grateful for my eyebrows now!

Hi Meghan- noticed our comment about the B12- maybe try the shots once per week. You can get the stuff at the Pharmacy- I got an Rx from a nutrition lady- a RHN- and picked it up - you use a diabetic needle- very easy to do and only about once per week. Better than the oral doses as far as B12 goes.

Hope it helps and good luck at the derm.

Hi Meghan,
Hi, I was reading your profile and was wondering how you were going, i was diagnosed about the same time as you. I have a patch at the back of my head, one small one at the front of my head. I have noticed at the front there are little prickly hairs, Im pretty sure these are new hairs growing back. The patch at the back feels prickly, i have very fair hair so it is hard to see if there is actually any hairs there.
Im going back for my second visit to the dermatologist on Monday, he took a whole range of blood tests, so will see what he has to say :)

Hi Meghan,
Thanks for adding Olivia as a friend. I am her mom Sandy and I manage her profile for her. We would like to welcome you to Alopecia World. You are going to enjoy the people that you meet here. We have friends from all over the world. Olivia has had alopecia since she was 2 years old and has lost all of her hair twice. When she was 8 years old Olivia decided not to wear wigs or hats. She handles her condition very well, but it is not always easy. Right now she is losing her right eyebrow. Ironically, Olivia
has had a lot of opportunities come into her life as a result of her
alopecia. She is involved in acting/modeling and is a Kid Caster on
Radio Disney. We recently wrote, filmed and produced a music video about alopecia and bullying. Though Olivia has never been teased or bullied personally we know others who have been. You can view 'I Could Be Great!' on Olivia's profile page under videos.
Let us know what you think of it.
Sandy Rusk
