Hi - I am a mother of 4 children (14, 12, 10 and 6 years old) - three of my children have alopecia:
My daughter got one spot 4 years ago (1 cm) - it is still the same size and she didn´t get any other spots (she was 8 when I discovered her spot and she never get a treatment).
My oldest son (now 14) got 3-4 spots when he was 7 years old - and they were pritty big. He got a kind of light-therapy and all hair came back within a half year. About one year later he got 2 spots again - but no treatment - and all hair came back anyway. Recently 16.6.2014) I found one new spot (left side, about 1 cm)ánd today (19.6.2014) a new spot on the back of his head (1 cm)
My youngest son (10) got 1 spot in 2013(ca. 1 cm big) - and recently another little spot (1 cm)- he is not loosing more hair...
Chloe so far has been very lucky. She has only 8 bald spots that we are still able to hide. Her hair is starting to thin in additional spots. We will go to the dermatologist on the 26th, I hope we will be able to find more help.
Your children are adorable, such cute photos. I will share there happy smiles with Chloe.
Hello! It's been 4 weeks for us and I can see some very tiny hairs growing on the very edge of the spot, nothing in the middle though. So that's hopeful, and no new ones thankfully! We are doing well, it's early spring here, how about over there?
Hello Annette! I saw the pictures on your page of your children and they are just beautiful! It's only been a week and I don't think there has been any change in the size of her spot. Her hair is pretty thick so it's not obvious to most people, but when when her hair is wet it's very obvious, so I get a pit in my stomach when it's time to wash her hair worrying about what I will find. Her 9th birthday is this weekend so she's pretty excited about that. She knows that she has AA, but doesn't really know what it is exactly, just that she has a bald spot. Let me know how you are from time to time....take care,
Deine Bilder sind toll und ich wünsche Dir viel Kraft für Dich und Deine Kinder. Ich bin als Erwachsener erkrankt und habe selbst zwei kleine Kinder. Siehe mein Profil. Ich würde mich sehr über Austausch freuen.
Liebe Grüße Summer
