If you shave it all off

Posted on August 9, 2015 at 4:30am 5 Comments

Hi - I have FFA, took years for the doctors to take it seriously.

 I have had the cortisones, NSAID , and minoxidil  and have had reactions to first two. Moon face, neuropathy.

The hair just keeps getting thinner and I am 59. 

I hate the itching - it never seems to actually stop.

It is spoiling so much in my day to day life, worst days being stressed days and the ones with flares.

I am healthy eater, do like wine, not much dairy but its there.
