Female Bald Spot — Alopecia Areata?

Hey Dr. Rassman, I just found out this bald patch in my head and wondering if there’s anything i can do to prevent it from getting worst? I’m 27f and there’s no bald history in my family that I know of. My hair is thinning as well, and have not tried any products at all… what kind of re-grow hair products would you recommend?

Thanks.

If you have a bald patch that appeared on your head, I would be concerned that you might have Alopecia Areata (search this site). First, get to see a good dermatologist. This can be a serious problem and it should not be washed away with topical solutions and hair care products.

  2. i am 13. I have really thick hair and i am known for having great locks. This year a bald spot grew right on top of my head, towards the back of my scalp. It shows unless I am constantly fixing it. I use a side part to cover it, but the more it grows toward my part, the harder it is to keep it covered. Anyway, I am going to sleepaway camp soon and they do lice checks the first day. Whomever is going to check my head with find this rather large growing bald spot and I am so scared, ashamed, and embarassed. Someone please give me some advice!

  3. About one month ago, I found a nickel sized bald spot on my scalp. It now is the size of two quarters. About one week ago my hairstylist found 3 small – new spots. How long will it be before the bald spot stops spreading and getting bigger. I am scared that it will turn into Alopecia Totalis. What is the possibility it will turn into totalis. Does anyone know the general length in time it takes before my hairloss stops to spread?

  5. Im 16 years old and i have a bald spot on the top of my head thats pretty noticable unless i part it a certain way. It doesnt seem to be getting any bigger but it doesnt seem to be going away either. Ive been to a skin demotologist twice and each time she has injected the spot with steroids to help it grow back faster. It doesnt seem to have done anything and it has been there for 8 months. What should i do? im sick of being 16 and bald. (by the way the rest of my hair is really thick except for that spot)
