hi, im a long time lurker first time poster and i really need advice. 6 years ago, when my son was 2 - 3 years old, i had a couple of bald patches on my head. i was diagnosed as alopecia atreta. it cleared up. i had another baby alomost two years ago now and again my hair has started to fall out. for about a year now at both sides of my head my hair has been getting extremely fine, so fine that other people can notice. i went to my docter and she said it was alopecia again. i have had the blood tests again and bothing showed up. anyways im going back to the doctor this because im starting to think that it isnt alopecia. the reason is i only have one tiny patch on the side of my head, which as i said has taken a year to form, doesnt alopecia happen more quikly than that. both times it happened from a year after id had a baby. and thirdly im losing grey hairs too arent they usually left by alopecia. i would greatly appreciate advice and opinions to be armed with when i go to the doctor this week. thanks in advance of replies.
