The past couple of months I've been experiencing what I think is regrowth, seeing "white" eye lashes, eye brows and hair on the scalp but it is non-pigmented. Basically you can only really see it in a certain light/angle, curious of any others that have seen this?? Not sure where this is going to lead but I hope it thickens and I see the color coming back soon. :] I visited a holistic doctor and came to the conclusion that the steroid ointments that I was given for my eczema caused my immune system to go haywire, it apparently can take up to 10 months for steroids to leave the system completely but looks like there's been success ever since I stopped using it! There are some hairs on the scalp that grow faster and are longer, more whispy while it looks like there is still a lot of finer, fuzzier baby hairs.
This looks like some nice regrowth. Perhaps it is a late effect of the steroid.
Thank you! Yea, I was thinking since it's only been about 3-4 months since I've fully stopped using the steroid ointments that they're still in my system.
Thank you and congrats to you as well! Hope you find out for sure what has been helping you :] Are your eyebrows and eyelashes non-pigmented as well? I'm super curious to see the process of the regrowth so this has all been very interesting to me haha
Nice to speak with someone who is experiencing the same thing as me! I fortunately don't have to deal with the tattoo problem though, glad that you can make light of it LOL. I'm with you though, I'm super excited that I can wear mascara again too, make up is a little hobby of mine as it is for most girls :]
Thank you for sharing that, looks like you're having some nice success!
Oh wow, that's a huge deal how exciting! I hope everything goes well and that your growth continues as well, thank you! We might've gone through losing our hair but it helped us build our strength and character, helping us mold into who we are today. We are strong <3 I always had alopecia growing up but it was always small spots and now I realize it was probably every time I turned to steroids to help combat my eczema. I had always gone to the same derm but the last time I went, I had seen a new doctor and she gave me one of the strongest prescriptions. One ointment for my body and a cream for my face (you're not really supposed to use them on your face to begin with so no wonder it attacked my hair right away and so severely) so my body was basically packed with steroids. Needless to say, I tossed the ointments out lol
