I am a Mum to a 10year old boy who developed Alopecia last October and is now totally bald and has no eyebrows or lashes either. We noticed an eyebrow with a chunk of hair missing and then 3 weeks later big patches of hair missing from the back of his head. By January 2012 he was wearing a hat & is now completely bald. What is interesting is that the hair loss started just one week after having the flu jab as he has had a history of winter illnesses, swine flu and pneumonia, suffers from asthma exzema and verruccas all of which indicate a compromised immune system. It is my opinion that my sons' immune system, being already so low, reacted to the flu jab with this Alopecia. Has anyone else heard of this reaction? The GP and consultant could only remark that "it may have exaccerbated an underlying risk". My son is now drinking Aloe Vera, taking digestive enzymes, amino supplements and probiotics and following a food intolerance test is de toxing his gut by coming off gluten, tomatoes & a few other foods which showed up in the test. This in theory will help his gut to heal and therefore be able to help his immune system to "reboot". He is so sad and angry that doctors can't give him answers that we will try most things to give him some hope. Anyone had a similar reaction to immunisations?
