"I can't speak 100% on this but, the clinical trial guidelines are only moderate to severe alopecia areata. Greater than 50% hair loss. Participants must be between 18 and 65. There have been ongoing clinical trials sponsored by Consort.…"
"You are welcome.
You can also go to www.clinical trials.gov and look for clinical trials and locations for CTP-543.
Hopefully there is a location near you and you will be accepted. But remember a clinical trial does not always guarantee the drug.…"

I am new to this site, just joined yesterday. Has anyone else had issues with wigs feeling itchy on your head? I have been diagnosed with Lichen Planopilaris. I tried on some wigs to see what they feel like when I was first diagnosed with this. They were so uncomfortable because of the itching, especially on the front. I went to a wig shop and tried these on. I know there are various kinds of wigs. I'm am hoping I can get some information on how to find some wigs that are comfortable and not so harsh to the scalp.
I saw your post on My Follea group and I wanted to let you know that there are Follea consultants located all over the country. On Saturday, October 14th there will be a Beauty Bazar in Daytona and Follea will be there as well. This may be a great time to stop by and see the pieces.
Otherwise, you can go onto Follea.com or locksbylesley.com or peggy knight.com and find a consultant to speak with.
Thank you for your comment! I'm getting the impression that many people have their first outbreak as children or young adults and I am older than that. I guess it's possible I might have had small spots before and never noticed but I think my hair stylist would have commented and I see her every 5 weeks. What I have now is much larger than a quarter. I don't see many people with AA mention having allover scalp discomfort, so it makes me wonder if I have AA or possibly something else. I have a lot of research to do on this site!
