I have honestly come to the conclusion that most dermatologists.... suck. No, seriously they are horrible and don't know what to prescribe they just give any type of drugs and hope it will work. Not cool! Today, I actually had to tell me new dermatologist that no, you cannot give me cortisone shampoo while on squaric acid because it defeats to whole purpose of the acid. So, I have come to the conclusion that in college I will study pharmaceutical science and either become a dermatologist myself or a pharmaceutical scientist. I definitely think dermatologist who "treat" alopecia should only specialize in it instead of just study it and treat it. Having alopecia yourself and wanting to help others would make a doctor more ardent in their field and want to actually help their patient. Im writing this in a lot of frustration.
