I am new here but I am always on the lookout for natural remedies so I hope to learn a lot here and maybe at some point contribute something as well
My husband has had alopecia areata in varying degrees for pretty much his whole life. As a child the patch was always small enough to be able to cover with surrounding hair. About 3 years ago it progressed to the point where he now shaves his head. He has hair regrowth all the time but then new patches start (if you took a picture from year to year the bald spots would be in completely different areas - all on his head though...never progressed anywhere further) Does anyone have any ideas as to suppliments or anything that I could give him to help? He went to the doctor (something he hates doing) when the hair loss got particularly bad. The dr checked his thyroid via bloodwork - found nothing. Advised my husband that he could try steroid shots which probably wouldn't work anyways (my husband would not have agreed to them in any event)
Any ideas/advice would be great!!
I just found your message....
I'm a mother of two with number 3 on the way. My DD (aged 7) has ad alopecia areata since she was 4. It is a mild-moderate form... she is often fine and sometimes has bald patches, particularly in spring.... then it all grows back in summer... then in winter maybe she gers one patch... and it becomes worse in spring with maybe 4-5 patches.
I recently had her tested for allergies (none) and food intolerance (waiting for results).
Her blood tests are otherwise totally fine and she is a very healthy child, except from very moderate atopic reactions on face/arms from time t time.
She is currently taking biotin and zinc phosphate following orders from doc...
Thank you for reading
