I'm 29 and in good health, according to the doctor! On Christmas my husband noticed a patch of baldness on my head, since then the patch has increased in size. The derm. has given me cortisoin(sp?) shots and I am to go back again in a few weeks for more shots. Since then several other patches have appeared.
From the research I have done there is no real cause and no real cure for this, however I have read many articles saying that stress may be the cause of this. Nothing has happened in my life to cause me more stress. Regardless I have been working out for the past 2 weeks, taking a multivitamin and eating much better in hopes that this would help. I understand it would take about 3 months before I see results and even if the new patches grow in, new ones may form.
Has anyone dealt with this? Can you tell me your story? What did you do and how did you cover it up? I would appreciate any help or advice you can offer.
