    helloo ..my question is to mothers of AU children
    my fiance got alopecia since he was 18 ,,
    Unfortunately when I was googling the disease by chance in the last few weeks , I was shocked to read that the condition is hereditary , it was a big shock to me I totally understand and accept his suffering but I don't want our children suffer too .. I'm so sorry guys maybe I'm so rude
    please guys I need to know is this true or not ?what did ur dermatologists tell u concerning this issue ? to what extent does the disease pass to children ?if so will it pass to boys or girls ? do u know real cases that the father passed the AU to his kids ? if it happens will they experience it from childhood or after then ? by the way*,he has no family history except from normal pattern alopecia of his father , ,

    from what i understand it is possible but not likely. You have a slightly higher likelihood than average but not much
