hi, my son was diagnosed with alopecia areata about 5 years ago. for the longest time his hair would grow in patches and we were able to cover it. in the fall/winter his hair grew in completely and was thick and coarse. it was beautiful. in january/february, i think when allergy season started where we live, his hair started coming out again. i took him to the doctor because i thought that it might be because of his allergies. they did say that he had allergies, but nothing too major. he no longer has eyebrows and his hair is so thin and patchy that it looks like he has been through chemo. i am not sure what to do. we have tried topical shampoos and "mousse" to help his hair growth but that doesnt seem like its working. other children are teasing him and i am at a loss as to what i should do next. please help! i dont know what to do or who to talk to, a dermatologist, allergist or hair loss expert???? i appreciate any advice that anyone can give to me.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
