The White Hairs Are Coming In with bumps...

Ok, now that I have owned the clean dome look I have a situation that just deiced to start happening on my head. Well it's really on the sides of my head, I am starting to grow a lot of the white wirers gray hairs that are becoming very curly the longer I let them grow, but are also causing bumps to appear with them as they grow. This is making it harder for me to shave with my bic, afraid of cutting the bumps and having something else other than smooth skin. Oh and I have black hairs growing in the front crown of my head with a little fuzz...

Has anyone been down this road? And have any solutions that work?

I have a dermatologist appointment set for August, can't get to her any sooner this doctor works with alopecia and there are not that many here that has the knowledge so I have to wait to see her.

I have not shaved in a week now because this is the worst the bumps have gotten, all I can do is wash my head with Noxzema and use Witch Hazel after and cover my head with a bandanna for the night which helps the bumps to go away for the beginning of the day. But I have to put sunscreen on my head in the morning and that makes it oily during the rest of the day.

If anyone has some quick fixes or suggestions please let me hear them.

The bumps are around the hair follicle and of course I am afraid to shave when they come out full force.

LMAO, I guess the plant does look like its growing from the top of my head... By the way the gray hair are growing they are only coming in on the sides, I have dark hairs coming in just the front with a bald spot on the top...Alopecia Totalis sucks, I am too on the fence with this hair thing... lol

I ended up canceling my derm appointment but my hair is sparsely growing in and there seems to be a lot more grey hair than I have ever had...Now that it's winter, I have purchased some wigs to keep my dome warm. I haven't shaved in a few days and my head is starting to look crazy, I might let it grow to see what it's going to do for the month... ;)
