My brother has had his hair fall out in patches for the last 2 months. The spots are about the size of a quarter, all the hair in the area comes out, and hair has kinda grown back their sparsely but is white.
Of course it's really bothering him, as it would anybody. I think it's also scary and don't want it to happen to me!
He saw his primary doctor, who made an appt. with a specialist. Of course the soonest time isn't until the end of June.
I researched on the internet and saw a picture of alopecia areata and it looks exactly like this.
Does anyone have any ideas on treatments for this, herbal treatments, or anything else?
My brother says he wont even go swimming, he's afraid people will think he has some kind of dreaded kooties!!
