Shaved my head

Hey guys,

Sooo,, I have had alopecia ever since 2007. AT first it was just a spot ( which i named oscar) which went away. Then I started getting more spots, and then my left eyelashes went and then my right eyebrow disappeared ( i know thanks for the symmetry ... NOT).. Well my last 6 months in college which was February 2011- July 2011 I lost 60% of my hair. AND I know it was not bc of stress, bc on Feb 13 I met my first love, and we had 6 amazing months, moments i never thought…

So i have not written anything on here in terms of Blog, but lately I have been feeling more and more alone with my alopecia. I was diagnosed in 2007 with AA, and when my first spot ( which I named OScar) started to go away I thought that was the end of it, but since then I have developed another spot ( Ramon), lost my right eyebrow (gretchen) and my left eyelashes (lola). The last couple of months I have seen a quicker rate of hair loss in the front. I used to have side bangs but had to go to… Continue

Yeah, definitely! What area of NYC do you live in? I'm going to be out of town this weekend, but I'll be around next weekend!

Wigs are annoying, but you get used to it and it becomes like an extension of yourself! Haha. The wigs I had all through high school required that double-sided tape to hold to my head, but I have a wig now that sorta suctions itself to my head haha.

I moved to NYC about two weeks ago! I'm still getting used to it. I was in DC for the past four months, so I've grown accustomed to the east coast weather at least haha. Are you in NYC?

Hello. Jillians pediatric dermatologist allows us to purchase the DCP from a local compounding pharmacyvia prescription & I apply it myself at home...cautiously. Mabye this will be possible for you as well.

Hello Gabriella. What a beautiful name! Jillian is still using DCP once a week, low dose, minimal sparse dabbing to apply. We have found that her cycle is somewhat like a bird molting its feathers ( only in the opposite order). During darker colder fall & winter months she loses her hair. When the alopecia is more active during those months we apply the med more frequently & sometimes increase the dose during that time as well. Apply to spots when its active & do random dabs when it seems to be the growing season. This works for her so far. I should post some recent pics. Last spring her crown was bald, now she has about 4 inches of hair on it & the spots she lost over the winter have about 2 inches of new hair. We also use a narrowband UV light (phototherapy) in the winter for a few minutes a day a couple times a week in hopes of mimicing the suns natural effects of heat & light to her scalp. I know her alopecia is still active because her body hair is still patchy, & minimal but it even grows back more in the summer. Eyebrow & eyelash loss are less in the summer as well. So we continue to use the DCP as a "maintenance" dose. She tolerates it well & has achieved the desired effect with minimal itchiness & irritation but enough for it to work. Good luck to you. Keep us posted.
