I still see little hairs growing on my daughter's scalp is that a good sign her hair will grow back? We've been using medications on her and haven't had much success with flucinonide and tretinoin. Now her derm prescribed her to use olux hope that works better. Any advice on this?
Hello and welcome
Alopecia Areata is a condition where it is impossible to predict outcomes. Sometimes (especially with children), it will go into a natural remission, but at this time there is no known cure.
If I can help or support you in any way feel free to contact me.
So do I.
My daughter also has alopecia she is older than your wee girl (23 now). She has had alopecia in various forms (AA, AT, AU etc) for the last 11 years.
You aren't alone.
We have never used any medications or treatments for her alopecia. Her hair has gone in and out of remission on it's own.
No, not fully. A couple of times about 97%, a couple 70%, but never fully. Sadly it always fell out again as well. :(
Making sure our bodies have the balance of vitamins it needs to function properly is important. Has your daughter had a blood test done by the Doctor to make sure she isn't deficient in any vitamin? I did and I was deficient in Vitamin B12 and low in Iron Ferritin. I increased both of these and my hair has started to grow back.
