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.
I might cope if the flares stopped. Prednisone works but feel out of body with it for a while.
I am thinking of just shaving it all off, and walking out.
I will not do hair pieces and such, the itching will have me scratching and then I will look a mess.
New look, new start. I am in shock as FFA has robbed me.
This is the future, worrying about hair - maybe get rid of the hair.
Anyone tried it?
