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 then I'll shave mine off and we can be just alike". I think seeing a spot in her hair hurt me worse than seeing mine!
