Hello Ladies i really do appreciate the conversation and support here in this forum. I don't know where to begin with my story. I will try to keep it short. I am 28 years old. My hair loss started 3 years ago, after I lost my father due to cancer. I was shedding a lot but never really paid attention to it because I had a lot of hair. I was sure that it would get better at some point. Well that has been not the case Then two years ago my hair dresser found a bald patch in the nape area. My Doctor thought it could be diffuse Alopecia Areata. result: no diffuse Alopecia Areata, it seemed to be more TE. The funny thing was that 2 weeks after my Biopsy the hair stared growing back in the bald area and only there. Is there a possibility that Inflammation in Alopecia Areata can only be seen in the active phase of Alopecia Areata? Even the biopsy suggested TE, the doctor than told me, just by looking to the top of my head, that it is Androgenetic Alopecia. I was really shocked and since then really depressed about my hair. Another dermatologist used a dermascopy and diagnosed me with TE. I have done so many blood tests. I also went to an Endo. hormones where fine, only ferritin ( 39)and vitamin d where low. So, I am no more vitamin d deficient and I also raised my ferritin levels to 72. I tried Mesotherapy, also PRP. Unfortunately it did not worked for me. I also tried Regaine for 8 month. It reduced a tiny bit the shedding but no regrowth. I am so confused. Really. Do I have TE or Androgenetic Alopecia/ DUPA? I am really freaking out. Some days i truely believe it is something else than Genetic. And some days I am sure that it is Androgenetic Alopecia but more DUPA since it is thinning all over. For me, i do have miniturized everywhere I am also shedding short/long thick/ thin hairs. I am crying every day because I lost my once thick curly hair. I am from Germany and the doctors here always telling me that if it's Androgenetic Alopecia, it will not affect your nape area. I really don't know what to believe. Here are some pictures this is all I have on my scalp please be honest. What do you think? More DUPA or something else? There is really no unaffected area left.
