My bald spots  are on top and on right side. I was told my scarring alopecia was from stress. That is all the info I was told. Would using Rogaine  help any.

Hi! Is it possible to be bold and bald with scarring alopecia? do the scars fade? Or do we not have the nice skin that accompanies other types of alopecia?

Diagnosed 10 mos. ago and don't know much about it. Dr.not much help. She put me on MGP which got rid of sores. She had done a biopsy. Am healthy except for hair problem. What can I use on scalp that might help hair to grow. Any help would be appreciated. What is best place to order a wig. I have to have a petite.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Manda, thanks for the info re aloe vera. It is a fantastic healing plant for many conditions. I am only using diet and natural renedies so I will give it a go. I pretty much ignore my hair loss now, just accept it as part of my life and use herbal supplements to try and reduce inflammation in my body to prevent other illness in the future. I appreciate your reply. Xxx

Hey  @Debs!! I hate this message is so late!! I have CCCA..for the inflammation i've had great results with using aloe vera juice! I drink it(not always lol) and I massage my scalp with it as a "pre-poo", I use it with my shampoo, and even spray my hair with a mixture of aloe vera juice, glycerin, and water....There are moments when my scalp is sore from inflammation and when I use the aloe vera in any way it's stops the inflammation. I haven't  seen any hair loss since I've cut my hair out and started using it. I've actually seen much growth. I equate that to the aloe vera and my It Works Hair Skin Nails vitamins...i'm praying it stays but then again I am comfortable with whatever happens! Hope this helps! and good luck!!

Hello Ladies, thank you for responding. I stopped all meds back in February and am just focusing on looking after my health. Any holistic strategies anybody has found useful for reducing inflammation in their body I would love to know. I have also now developed episcleritis - inflammation in my eyes - not a serious condition but the cause is inflammation the same as my FFA.

Yes, the group is still active. I am not as active since I went totally bald four years ago. I accepted my condition and take no drugs or wear wigs or scarfs.
