Alopacia Areata

Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. This came on very suddenly and I was quite devastated at first. However, I have found ways to arrange my hair that it is not as noticeable.

I also find that it has given me a feeling of connection with others who have hairloss. (Something I had not before considered a serious problem).

It is interesting that the doctor says there is no known cause of this condition. Hmmm... makes a person wonder how they can attempt to prescribe stuff to help it?

My father is into vitamins and claims that the doctors need to study up on these. I have begun to take zinc and vitamin E. I have already had some regrowth in one spot (but it is white). Can anyone tell me if this is normal for this condition?

Thanks, Daylight :wink:
