Are there any moms out there whos Child has any form of Alopecia?

My daughter who is 9 was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata when she was 8. We have had a rough go of it, but are coping a little better now! Anyway, would love to talk to anyone who has a child or knows someone with this condition. If you want more info on this Auto-Immune disease please let me know. I had never heard of the condition until my daughter was diagnosed with it...

  • My brother got alopecia areata for the first time when he was 10. Nothing really helped it go away. He's 24 now. It comes & goes. I do know that it's triggered by stress
