"HI Erika, I just wanted to share I have FFA, classic in presentation. I have never had a biopsy. My derm never suggested it she knew straight away. Having researched FFA I have no doubt I have it, I match all the symptoms and pictures of…"
" Hello Erika, sorry you are in the midst of any and all of this alopecia business! My experience was that I had a biopsy and it was positive for FFA. My dermatologist did say that he had to get the biopsy from the correct place because…"
