john stanton last decadeThanks for the questions. Here are the answers: The alopecia problem started in july 2003. Nothing major seemed to have happened before this. She started her periods a year ago in november 2002. Her menstrual cycle is irregular. She has pitted nails with some white spots. Her appetite is normal. She has hayfever and dust allergy and takes antihistamines for that as and when needed, which is more needed during the period of time between march and october.When really bad she becomes asthmatic and uses her inhaler then. She is a sensitive and affectionate child. She is going through her teen cycle of behaviour at the moment!
If you would kindly advise us on a remedy.

♥ PANKAJ VARMA last decadeI'm a 48 year old female with a history of patchy hair loss for approximately 3 years. I have had, over those years sporatic patches, no larger than a half dollar that have responded to cortisone injections and the use of Micanol cream. However, this time the areas are larger, there's more of them and I don't want any more injections. The Micanol is burning my scalp and I don'tknow what to do. I am a well controlled insulin dependent diabetic since age 13 and other than "normal" everyday stress, I have not experienced any major traumas that would be a contributing factor. I eat a well balanced diet and have been told that this is probably due to auto-immune factors. My thyroid is healthy. Please respond with some advice before I go completely bald. I'm desperate, not vain. Thank you
Anya last decadeSomething you said really hit home with me, "not vain." Why is it that if we were on chemo or some other drug and started to lose our hair it would be okay to be upset, but when we don't have a reason for it we end up feeling vain. I'm a 21 year old, and I started with a dime size spot three years ago and now have very large spots, some merging together. I don't have an answer but I feel your pain.
Kansasgirl last decadeHi, I am a 26 year old female. I noticed a small dime size patch of hair loss in November of 2003 and this is May of 2004 and I have lost all my hair.
I recently went through a bad break up but this started 8 months later. I had eczema for the past year or two and I was taking steroids since then. Now I stopped everything else and I completely switched to Homeopathy. I dont know why but I want to believe in something. I hope I made the right choice. I dont have any hair on my scalp and I am slowly losing all the hair on my body. I dont know what the outcome will be.
has anyone gone through this and used Homeo? Or do you know anyone who used homeo for Alopecia totalis? Please do let me know. It is a little reassuring to find out that it works.
saburi last decadeMy age is 21.I am using permanent hair colors for the last three years.Now I feel that I have lost a lot of hairs at the back of head.At first I have some kind of allergy at the back. But then I started to use non-ammonia based hair colors and result is quite satisfactory.I can feel reduction in allergy.I want to know my disease and remedy for it.Is there any solution of premature greying in homeopathy.
shashank last decadeI have been successful in controlling the loss of hair in many cases with Arnica 6c to be taken with any good Fish liver oil and Vitamin E.
Dose 2 balls Arnica 6c 3 times daily. 1 capsule FIsh oil and Vit E daily.
You should notice a reduction of your hair loss in 2 weeks and new growth should be visible in about a month.
Suggest you also read the many other posts on this BB on the same subject.
♥ Joe De Livera last decadei m also having dandruff and some kind of infection at the back of head.please suggest a remedy for that.
shashank last decadeI would suggest that you take Sulphur 30c just one dose of 3 balls per day preferably at night, under the tongue for a week and post results.
Johnson's Baby Shampoo is also recommended as it is very mild and may help your problem.
