I just got my first steroid shot yesterday, and my dermatologist said that my hair may start to grow back in 4 to six weeks. I really can't wait that long. I have told only my closest friend that I…Continue

I have a slightly funny story today:)

So, on facebook, Alopecia Areata requested my friendship. I said yes and decided to check out the profile. Apparently, there is a herbal hair growth treatment that is all natural or whatever.

So... I went to the Dermatologist for a checkup.

I have had Alopecia Areata since I was 2 years old... I am the only one in my school of over 450 kids who has it !! It is not a big deal anymore. Everyone knows me and I am pretty polular around school.... I really think it is because I am different !!
