Just suffered from alopecia areata.. 2 months plang from now.. Bale tatlo patches palang nakikita ko.. Any advice doc?
Alopecia Areata can be caused by stress (physical. emotional, psychologica or mental) or if you are taking some medication or undergoing treatments and some other factors.
If you have no WarayBuhok or Arabuhok Family or genes (Androgenetic Areata), and there is no underlying illness that can cause the falling of the hair -- you can certainly use the medication available in the market to treat the baldness,
It is highly recommended to use (any meds of your choice. One way or the other it can still work your way to regrow your hair. I do not want to patronize one product. Hehehe. I think, all of those are available and researched that's why FDA approved it for use) -- follow instructions and ensure that before taking any topical solution, the scalp should be well cleaned, not greasy or anything that will block the absorption of the medicine. Use 40% alcohol in a cotton ball, clean with it -- and then follow the meds' instruction religiously.
Avoid covering your head as much as possible (Helmets, hats, etc). Diet also contributes to areata. Also avoid using commercial hair products.
If you can visit any dermatologist much better, however I can see in some mall there are some free hair consultation in order for you to assess the condition of your hair.
It can be easily treated, it takes time but it will.
