Hi my name is Tyffanie, I am 25, and I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata yesterday. I feel like a tornado has come into my life and destroyed it. I have noticed some all over hair loss in the last 2 months, nothing crazy. Then over the last 2 weeks on the top of my head and my hairline I am loosing spots. They are getting more noticable everyday. I went to the Dr yesterday not knowing what to expect and she diagnosed me with Alopecia Areata and assured me that it will grow back. Then she injected my scalp with some shots and prescribed me a foam called Oxul to apply twice a day. I have done some personal research online and her verdict does not go with the other stories I am hearing about. I am so confused. Is more hair going to fall out? Am i getting the right treatment? What is the timeline for the disease to run its course and new hair to come back? I am only 25 and I am going bald, how can this be happening to me? Can someone help me?
