I have had alopecia for 30 years, its part of who I am, I've dealt with it and live it with just fine.
Now I have two amazing kids.... a few weeks ago I noticed my sons beautiful thick lashes have a clump missing on the top left eye and his right eyebrow is thinning out.
His head is fine and I see no signs of anythign, but I AM FREAKING OUT... can this really happen to my kids.. the thought of it makes my stomach turn. I know alopecia generally begins with hair on your head, certainly that has been my experience.. but can it start with the eyes.. and what is the genetic component here... should I wait and see or should I book a dr. appt. TOMORROW.
