About Me:
I am 28 and I have two beautiful sweet girls! I just work and hang out with my kids! I have alopecia areata and it is very frustrating! I have 3 spots right now and its getting worse. I have just been wearing hats and fixing my hair in different ways to cover it up. I was so stressed at first....but now I'm kinda starting to accept it and just live a normal life! It is hard to just go on like nothings wrong. I had cortisone shots already and nothing is making the hair grow! If anyone has had good results from any treatments then please let me know! I love to make new friends so add me!

Never ending story!

Posted on September 2, 2009 at 11:23pm 4 Comments

Well..Its been a while since I got on here, but I wanted to update my stuff! I did have three spot and they were getting bigger and bigger and then I had cortisone shots and the clobetasol gel! Well, the shots made my scalp way too thin and he said that I could not have any more shots for at least two years! So then it was a waiting game to see how it would turn out. The hair started growing back really fast and good! I was so excited! But last night I was looking in the mirror and saw a spot… Continue

kinda confused

I went to the dermalologist yesterday to get more cortisone shots and he told me that my scalp was too thin and he could not do any more shots until my head heals. He said it would take it about 2 years to heal. He took a complete blood count and everything was good. Does anyone use clobetosol propionate gel, 0.05%? Will that also make my scalp thin and I dont know if I should continue to use it if my scalp is already too thin! I need help!

Shampoo & Biotin?

I am trying to figure out what kind of shampoo would be good to use...I still have three big spots and they are getting bigger! I have tried to start using milder shampoos but it dont seem to help at all? Also I have been taking Biotin 5000...Does anyone know if that will help? I have a little bit of hair coming in on one spot..but the others are still smooth as ever! When I start feeling frustrated and sad...I get on here and just read and it makes me feel better!

just venting

Well I'm headed to work and my head is itching and has sore spots. I really don't know if thats normal. My spots are getting bigger and it is so frustrating that nothing is working! I am wondering if the cortisone shot are just a waste of my time. I have to go back in 2 weeks and get more! Well I guess I'll slip on my hat and head off to work!

"Just curious"

Ok..My daughter is 6 years old and I was fixing her hair so I could take her to gymnastics and I found about a quarter size spot in the back of her hair. I feel so sad for her. When I went to the doctor last week I asked him about it and he gave me some gel to start using on her hair twice a day...but he said that it was unusual to see a mother and daughter with AA. Does anyone know if that is unusual? She is very supportive of me though and she always says,"mommy if you lose all of your hair… Continue

Hey - Yeah, everyone says that about my little girl. Our baby pics are the same too. Thanks. I just found 2 new spots. I'm not sure what to do. I wish it would just stop falling out and I pray that it does. It's in Gods hands now, I have faught it too long with the worry and stress. I trust that he will reoslve it soon for me. I get so down sometimes, but when ya pull back and take a look at it, there really is nothing I can do. I can treat the symptoms, however, if my hair is terminal, well then, it's terminal and not a whole lot I can do other than place my focus on wigs and a new lifestyle. I guess we need to be thankful for our hair falling out and the fact we don't have some horrible condition that prevents us from playing with our kids and being physical, ya know? I am here for you when you need me. 828-442-1774, and you can send me a note anytime also. I'm in NC. Take care~

Hey! Well i just get in over the counter from Boots (pharmacist/chemist) so i would try that, it says its for men on the bottle and they usually ask me who its for and i just say it's for my dad or something just to avoid complications.
Believe me i understand exactly how you feel! When my hair first started falling out i lived in a small town in Argentina where everybody knew me and they all found out eventually because i wore a hat ALL THE TIME for one year.. it was awful!
I was the same with my self esteem, i literally have none left because of this but i'm trying my best to build it back up.
Always here if you wanna talk :)
Stay strong xxx

Hey Misty, Yeah, I still have trouble although mine is going really slow. It started back in Aug of 08. I still have enough hair to cover the spots. I get cortisone injections from the Derma and it make the hair grow back, but then I just get new spots. I had very long thick, thick hair so maybe that is why it seems to be falling out slow. Anyway, I don't wash it or comb it much. Maybe once or twice a week. I just pull it all back. I use Toppix powder to help hide the spots. It works GREAT. You can find that at Sally's Beauty Supply. I'm just thankful I still have hair, and I hope and pray that it will stop falling out. I guess I will keep on trucking like this until there is not enough hair to use the powder and hide the spots. Then I guess it's wig time. Hate that though. I also use tar shampoo, it seems to help a bit. I hope you are well. Where do you live?

Hey Misty! Thanks for your comment. How are you? Yes it is really hard to deal with, especially not knowing what's going to happen. I've been wearing a wig now since october and it was helped in ways but just made me feel worse in others. Now its coming on to summer and we're getting some pretty warm days (very unusual in england but even so haha) and wearing a wig is really annoying me! In your about me section you ask if anyone has had any positive results and i guess i can say i have, last summer my hair was at its worse having lost about 85% of it but i've been using minoxidil 5% since then, just spraying in on the bald area every night and i think its safe to say ALL my hair has grown back! of course some bits are shorter than others ans stuff but i'm just so happy! i didn't think anything would work and all the doctors said they couldn't do anything about it. I'm still wearing a wig but not for long :) Hope things are great for you,
take care

Hey Misty! Thanks for the message. I'm doing great....just trying to avoid the 105 degree temperatures outside right now. How are you? I read your "about me" and I also get the cortisone injections. I find the injections to be the most affective on the eyebrows rather than the scalp. Have you used 5% minoxidil foam or fluocinodide topical solution? None guarantee re-growth, but it's possible that you may respond well to the treatments. Talk to your Dermatologist and see if he or she has heard of these or any other treatments. Nice to meet you! ttyl

They are completely grown in, and I stopped going to the dermatologist months ago. EVeryone has the general concensus that these spots were stress related, and since they have grown back, I don't need any more treatment. I'm sure your will grow in too...good luck!!!

i just read some of your ?'s and i am not a doc but this is what i have been told...clorine (nothting hurts alopecia not hair collor , gel, lotion...nothing if its going to fall out it is going to fall out their is nothing to prevent it and nothing that worsens it)

as for you daughter having it i was told there is less than a 10% chance your child can inherit this didorder (that was one of my 1st question i asked my dermo. and thats what she told me) i am truly sorry if your daughter does have this i know how rough it can be personally from an adults stand point. just be strong and hopfully she doesnt have this crazy disorder. well hope i hellped take care
