I am a newby to alopecia areada. I was diagnosis about a month ago after having two biopsys on my scalp. The largest area is over 4 cm on the top of my scalp. I will never again laugh at the man who does comb overs. After my diagnosis I had a first series of injections. Seventeen to be exact. I counted. I go back in a couple of weeks for the next series of injections. I went to dinner with my 84 yr old mom the other night. (she is still a redhead) As we talked about my alopecia I told her that I had stopped into a wig shop to check them out as I might go bald My mom started crying, telling me I will not go bald. I told her that she needs not to worry. Whatever happens, happens for a reason. My supervisor survived pancrea cancer. We call her Dr. Roberts as she has a wealth of knowledge where health issues are concerned. I was telling her that I am ready to accept whatever is meant to be. She said this is how she was when she went thru her cancer treatments. My supervisor is funny. She comes into my cubical to check my head for new spots. She actually pointed out a few new ones. I would like to find other that have had the injections. Pros and cons. Also did anyone try rogain? Biotin? I am not ready to give up. I only know the more I stress the more hair I lose.
