Question: I have Hashimoto’s Syndrome and diagnosed alopecia areata. The hair on the crown of my head is not diminishing as fast as that around the face and all around the back of my head. What options do I have? I feel I will shortly have to wear a wig permanently. Is there anything that can be done?
Answer: Hashimoto’s Syndrome and diagnosed alopecia areata are autoimmune diseases which are attacking the hair follicles in your situation. If the disease can not be controlled, then the hair will continue to fall out. Sometimes, these diseases are self limiting, but your doctor will be in a better position to judge this for you. But it is worth seeing one of our trichologists as the alopecia areata may still be treatable.
