I HAVE A 10 YEAR OLD SON THAT WAS JUST RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH ALOPECIA. I AM NEW TO ALL THIS AND AM TERRIFIED TOO. MY HEART HURTS FOR HIM. HIS HAIR IS COMING OUT SO BAD THAT HIS CLASSMATES ARE NOTICING AND STARTING TO MAKE HURTFUL COMMENTS TO HIM AT SCHOOL. HE IS SOOO STRONG, AND THAT IS WHAT KEEPS ME STRONG FOR HIM. I ASK MYSELF EVERYDAY WHY, WHY MY SON AND PRAY I COULD BE THE ONE WITH ALOPECIA NOT HIM.
How along ago did your son start losing his hair? It's been 3 months for my daughter and it looks as though she must have lost about 70% so far. We ahven't shaved her head yet, but we really are considering doing it, because I can't stand to see the hair all over the floor and in her bed. It's extremely hard to cover the spots with the remaining hair... we actually it's impossible. The only reason why we haven't shaved her head yet is because she is just so in love with her hair... she just loves to play with it and brush it... and just be a girl. We have stopped using the steroid cream... we are putting onion juice on her head however and since we've been doing it (about a month now) we have seen alot of regrowth. Everyday I see a new area of regrowth... and a new area of hairloss. I don't care if all her hair falls out... I just hope to God that the regrowth sticks and doesn't fall back out! Good luck with your sons treatment... I hope you somehow find something that works!
Tonya, your last post on parents with children with alopecia- I can't get to since the site has been down. It is touting me to a different site. Just wanted to make sure you knew that I was not ignore your message...
Tonya, you are such a great mom, and Payton is soo blessed. The fact that you have been so tenacious about getting information about alopecia, and giving that presentation infront of all of those third graders speaks volumes about you as a person and a mother. Payton is tough and with your help, he is gonna pull through this!
