My 12 year old (soon to be 13) Has Alopecia. He has two big bald or thinning spots on his head at all times. He has thick hair everywhere else. If its long its not so noticeable but he has curly hair so it doesnt grow nice. When we cut it you can really tell the thin spots. Anyone have any advice on this. Its been about two years now but it still feels new.Answer Question
My mom has Alopecia Universalise, so she has almost no hair at all on her body (not eye lashes or eyebrows). It started off as just bad spots on her head and she was getting steroid shots in her scalp for it, but eventually that didn't even work about 10 years ago the rest of her hair fell out and then all over her body. I am really sorry you and your son are going through this, I can tell you as the child of someone who has it, it is difficult to watch. I guess you could try some styling product to try to get the hair to kind of stay put, and talk to your doctor about preventive care. I would hope that in this day and age they have found something that has better results. Good luck to you both.
