3 months ago I discovered a bald spot about the size of a dime right in the front and center part of my daughters scalp. I took her to the doctor and was told to wait to see if it got any bigger. Well three months later it hasn't gotten any bigger nor has the hair grown back. I search everyday and there isn't any new patches just that one. I took her back to the doctor and the doctor referred her to the dermatologist with a diagnosis of alopecia. I really hope it's not although I know other kids go through things far worse. I can't help but be worried sick with the way this could possibly make her feel about herself if she turns out to have Alopecia. I have my doubts and concerns if it's actually alopecia or not so I'm wondering has anyone elses alopecia been known to start out this way. Another factor is she has eczema, I know also not good news. By the way she is 5 years old.
