Well, I have been noticing the hair on my arms is now almost completely gone..weird. I even thought of sticking some tape to my arm, just to see if there was anything there for it to pull on...I am not sure when it left me, but it's not there anymore...my arms are bald...with the exception of a stray hair here or there. Wow! I am amazed at all of the little surprises that comes with Alopecia...and I am no where close to having AU...guess that's why I was so surprised. Guess I won't have to worry about those nasty doctors bandaids pulling the hairs on my arms anymore..lol

I am no where near AU either, but my eyelashes have already fallen out. It's crazy how Alopecia effects people differently. Good luck to you.

Thanks Rachell. My eyelashes are very thin, and yes, it is SO different from one person to another. I don't think I would tolerate it as easily without the support and understanding of others that can trully understand though!

I was so concerned about my head in 1994 that I never noticed my arms getting smooth as well, until one day I looked down and noticed. Since then, some fair hair has come and gone, but no longer will I ever have a problem there. I think.

LOL...yeah, its funny that I didn't notice my arms at first..and if I never have to shave my legs or underarms again, that would be quite alright with me..lol! Can't remember the last time I had to shave my legs either.
