View Full Version : 18 years old, Aopecia Areata

Hello, I'm an 18 years old male. I have longish black hair (shoulder-length) and I just finished my high school exams. When I was 16 someone from my class pointed out that I had a bald spot (no stubble) on the back of my head. Turns out to be Alopecia Areata.

Since then I tried to hide the bald spot by "painting" the bald part black and by putting my hair over it. It still looks and feels weird I think, if someone were to look closely they could still see it. The past two years were HELL, especially because you're a teenager and want to look good. Over the past few years I've been shy and afraid to be in public. I feel like it's affecting my social capabilities.

I'm at the point where I just want to shave it all of, but I'm afraid the bald patch will be more visible because of the stubble around it. I also kind of fear the reactions I might get since I'm still 18. I just want to live without constantly being afraid of how my hair looks.

Do you have any advice for me? Does the bald spot become more visible if I just shave it all of?

So easy to treat, first don't stress, shave over it and rub garlic daily if you want a natural treatment. If not go doctors get Dactokart that will regrow them and cut wheat.
