"I highly recommend taking hairfibity pills && using rogaine. I put the rogaine in a container where I can gently run the nozzle through her scalp and massage her scalp then I give her one hairfinity pill each morning with a glass of water…"
I am a 40 year old mom to two wonderful children. I work full time outside the home. I live in the Mid-West and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. My daughter is 9 and my son, Luke is 7. Luke was diagnosed with AA back in March of 08. We saw a dermatologist who had us try several approaches to regrow hair. She mentioned UV therapy which basically means let him get sun on his head. We stopped all other treatments and did this all summer and guess what? Luke had a 100% regrowth for well over a year. In Feb. 2010 we started to notice this coming back. I was heartbroken. We went back to the Vitamin D supplements and more exposure outdoor sun. This seemed to halt the AA again. For us, it seems that UV and Vit. D is the trick. Luke's hair still doesn't grow as fast as it used to and still seems a lot thinner so we always just watch and worry.

Hi Lisa, it's never too late! I would love to include you on the group's emailings. What is your email address? I think you can delete it after I get it. I will send you updates of our meetings and events. Heidi ...
Hi Lisa, I'm involved with the Minnesota alopecia areata support group and wondered if you would like to be added to the email list for activities and whatnot. I know Luke's hair has grown back but there may be something you might be interested in at some point. Let me know. Heidi ...
Thank you for your sweet words on my blog. It's been so long since I've been on here! Your kids are adorable too :) It's so nice to have other parents for support when learning about AA. It's good to meet you!
Hi Lisa, just wanted to say that I met a young women with AA a little while ago. She is 16 now and has alopecia since she was 4, as she does not remember ever having hair it is not a big deal for her having AA. In fact she hates wearing wigs as she feels she looks funny in them as she never recalls having hair. Although I remember my hair I too am very happy with my AU. I hope this is comforting that your son will most likely be very accepting of his AA if it does not decide to grow back as he will have had tome to adjust when he is younger. It is amazing at how young we learn to accept ourselves. Best to start off early then have to deal with it when your a teenager i feel.
My daughter Amber is also 4.5 and she was diagnosed last year. Being on this site has helped me alot and I hope that we can all to work together to build our children's self esteem as they battle this condition.
