"Thank you 3 for your replies! A dermatologist near me must of had a cancellation because an appt opened up for Monday. I snapped it up because I was told first week of May last time I tried to book. I will be sure to take a list of questions when I…"
"I know I have a lot of questions but I’m new to the club. I couldn’t find an answer to this. I have lost ALL of my eyebrow and eyelash hair. Does FFA scar those follicles too? So they will never grow back? Or does that type of skin not…"
"I love your positivity. The rash WAS from the hair dye. I literally am allergic to it. Here’s a pic of the aftermath of one such incident. I posted this unedited because I look quite diff when not being at risk of going into anaphylactic…"
"Good morning :) Seems you've got a good attitude going. In my opinion, I don't think it was hair dye or other things CAUSING the rashes - I think they simply triggered what was already going on under the surface. I used to color my…"
"Hello! The whole scabbing and oozing thing was actually a result of the hair dye allergic reaction. It happens every time. But after the allergic reaction cleared up, it seems my immune system had been triggered and the FFA went into turbo mode.…"
"Thank you for the suggestion. I got through about 9 pages and began feeling better. “Grieving” is a spot on description. And you’re right. I deserve to allow myself that grief. It’s just a matter of pressing forward now and…"
"Hi there!!! I've been absent from this board for quite some time as I went on my own little journey. I came back today just to see what's going on and to share a product I just discovered that is helping me. by the way, this…"
"@illustr8r I’ve heard a lot of people sing castor oil’s praises. I might have to start using it. I used to use Latisse in 2011 before I microbladed (it worked on my brows and lashes). You’ll never believe what happened. It caused…"
"Hello all! Does FFA cause the hair you have remaining to grow slowly? I chopped all my hair off about a year ago before FFA had come into my life. Now I feel if I had my hair back, I could hide the hairline with bangs. My hair is very curly. I had…"
Have you had a chance to read through the comment section of this site? When I first found this forum I went all the way back to the beginning of when it was first started and read for days. I could see myself and my…"
"Hugs to you! I googled Graham Little. It doesn’t seem to apply to me. Unfortunately, as my hair was thinning over these past several months, there was no itching, redness, or irritation. So I just figured I was losing it to aging. I…"
"Thank you for the reply. I might have been a little unclear. The oozing was from the hair dye. I’m allergic to the chemical PPD that’s in hair dye. I’ve been trying to find a new dermatologist. I’m in Indiana and so far, the…"
"I am so sorry that you have been through such a terrible time over the last several months. I'm glad that you have found this forum. I have found a lot of support and ideas from all of the brave ladies who share their hearts with what…"
"Welcome to the group. A dermatologist can tell you if you have FFA. My dermatologist just looked at my heads and diagnosed me without doing a biopsy. If you are not satisfied with the dermatologist that you saw, you could get a second opinion. It is…"
Hello all! This will be long because I talk too much. Glad to see activity here. A lot of the forums I found are no longer active. I am a 37 year-old black woman. I have sensitivie skin and am prone to contact dermatitis. Baby oil, Nair, and most deodorants give me rashes.
