2 year old Alopecia Areata!My daughter has had AA for about a year. It started of with nickle sized bald spots. The spots alway start off pink. Then slowly (a month or so) the hair falls out of that pink spot. Recently the spots have gotten larger and are spreading. Almost like a weed. I've read about the iodine. Has anyone tried it? Is there anything worth trying that is safe for my 2 year old? I havent tried anything yet...

I hope a homeopath will reply. I wish I had an answer but I am curious for suggestions as I have a friend whose little girl has it. Hers began at 18 months just after MMR - they believe it is auto-immune related...
I know a remedy would help just don't know which one.
busymominme last decadeArnica is your remedy taken internally and applied externally.
Get a vial of Arnica 30c and a 10ml bottle of Arnica Q or Mother Tincture.
Insert 3 pellets of Arnica 30c into a 50 ml bottle of spring water from your nearest supermarket and shake in hard to ensure bubbles. Sip a teaspoonful thrice daily for the first month reduced to twice daily thereafter. Shake the bottle hard every time you sip your teaspoonful.
Mix the Arnica Q to make a 20% solution with virgin Coconut Oil and shake it to ensure that it is mixed in completely. Apply a few drops on your finger tips to the area in the scalp or even all over and massage it into the scalp.
The hair loss should be arrested in a few weeks and the new hair growth should be visible in about a month.
Report response in a month.
♥ Joe De Livera last decadeAngela Please use Antimony Nigrum powder(in asia we say it SURMA SIAH) Mixed in a little Vengar apply it on these area i hop u will b able to see new hair only in one week
Dr.A.K.Khan last decadeJoe, What is Arnica Q and where can i find it? I've looked at our local Wild Oats and can't find it.
Also, do you think I should also try the iodine? Rubbing iodine on bald spots for 2 days and then rubbing coconut oil/Arnica Q on the 3rd?
ahong last decadeArnica Q is the Mother Tincture. You can get it at any homeopathic pharmacy or on line at the ABC store.
I have no experience with using Iodine for Alopecia and cannot comment. Suggest that you use the therapy I have indicated as it has been tried by many with success.
♥ Joe De Livera last decadeJoe, thanks for your response. I have ordered Arnica Q.
My daugher gets pink spots on her head then the hair falls out of it gradually. Do you know after using your remedy, I will first noice the dissapearance of the pink spots or just less hair falling out.
Also, is this a cure of does it just help keep the hair loss in control?
ahong last decadehey...my dayghter is 2.5 yrs old and seems to have same problem. Did you try arnica...did it work..please let me know. thanks
monikssuneja 9 years agoHi
allopathy has no cure for AA they simply terms it as stress related but its a fungus that feeds on hair shafts , u will notice a small pimple before it incubates n actually turns into a bald patch,rum garlis vigorously on the pimple this will sure get rid of the germ but for the bald patches u need a stronger medication coz the fungus lies several layers beneath the skin..try rubbing a strong vinegar or apple cider vinegar every day every 2hours till all the hair grow back!! but keep looking for the pimples even after .. i sufered frm the same problem..
