I am new to Alopecia world! I am 24 years old and I first started experiencing hair loss when I was 21. I have female pattern hair loss. I first started noticing a difference in my part, then it became general hair loss all over my scalp. I have seen many doctors and had many test done only to determine there is no medical help I can receive. My dermatologist has suggested cortizone shots in my scalp. I am wondering if anyone has experienced these and what the results are! Thanks you!!

Hi my name is Scott. I am hoping to connect with a girl who would like to meet and see where it goes. Friendship first, hopefully followed by a relationship. I look forward to sharing a relationship with someone I can relate to on all levels. Most people can not fully understand what we are going through. Look forward to meeting you!
So I haven't written a blog post in quite a while, it seems that I had forgotten that my Alopecia even existed for a while! A lot of you will be thinking that that is the worst thing to do, because it always seems to come back with a vengance, but not this time.
I suffer from AA, but when my hair starts to fall out it all goes from my head, but then after a while I do get regrowth! So the last time I fully lost my hair was Christmas 2013, it is now the summer of 2015! Yes I have lost…Continue

I decided today to look at some alopecia websites today for the first time. I had an idea that a lot of people have alopecia but I had NO idea how badly some people struggle with it. Reading some of the posts below put things into perspective for me so I decided to tell you all about my alopecia story.
I am now 20 years old and I have alopecia universalis. I got it around this time 3 years ago. It didn’t all fall out at once. First it was a slight loss of my eyelashes.…Continue

I am new to this site as off yesterday but not new to alopecia unfortunately. I am a 24 years old male, currently living in the highlands of Scotland and I have had alopecia for roughly 6 years now. At first my alopecia started off as AA and then slowly developed over to AT where it currently still sits. I have had patches off slight regrowth but nothing major. Currently I have lost about 90% off my scalp hair, 50% off my eyelashes and my eyebrows are roughly…Continue

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.
