Hello, My name is Kelly. My daughter, Vanna, started loosing her hair when she was 9 yrs old, she is now 15. At first I noticed big chunks of hair coming out when I helped her brush. We went to her pediatrician immediately & all blood tests were normal. They couldn't figure it out. Within 6 months she had lost all her hair, eyebrows, eye lashes, arm & leg hair - she had no hair on her body at all. Another strange thing is that she was diagnosed with a 2nd degree heart block 2 months after she started loosing her hair. We were referred to a pediatric Dermatologist, Endocrinologist, Rhumatologist & cardiologist all in a 6 month period. All the tests that were run by Endo & Rhuma were negative. We were told she had no autoimmune disease. She was started on Orapred by the Dermatologist. She had minimal regrowth but the side effects of the med turned her into a bear & they really didn't want her on the med for too long because of her heart anyway so we stopped the Orapred. We tried topical creams with little effectiveness. Vanna has been without any hair now for 5 yrs & her heart is maintaining - no worse & no better. I was wondering if anyone had any idea's?? Where do we go from here? Does anyone else have both alopecia & heart block? It breaks my heart to see my daughter struggle so much with her hair & trying to fit in at school. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
