March 2016: I got AA 9 years back. It slowly developed into AU. I tried many doctors, many treatments and nothing worked. I started accepting my condition after joining this group and learned to live with it, which is a good thing. At the same time, I was starting to give up hope.
Two years back, I thought I'll try my last shot with Dr.Richard Strick. At first I was skeptical with the treatment. I have tried a similar one where the cream irritates the scalp and triggers hair growth. I tried it anyway. After 6 months of patience, I saw my hair back. Still I was pretty confident it will fall off (remember I have gone through the same cycle for 7 years already!). Here's the awesome twist - this time my hair stayed!!!
I cannot try to explain my joy! Everyone please try the treatment, even if you don't think it will work for you. "Remember hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies."
Dr.Richard Strick retired and Dr.Madkan has taken over. Don't worry, she prescribes the same DNCB treatment.
I will happy to help with any more questions you have :)
December 2017: I wanted to update you guys that I'm still enjoying my full head. I get like 2 small patches every month but I immediately apply the medicine and new hair starts growing in a week.
