I'm sending you a link that may be helpful. From what I know about alopecia areata is that it is thought to be an autoimmune disorder. I'm currently on a research protocol (although the medications are not research medications) that is helping so many people with autoimmune diseases. I know I'm making progress with this protocol and my friends & family members have also noticed.
Please check your inbox.... I hope the information is helpful.
i have never heard of alopesia being linked to a vaccine, but im definatly going to read up on it now..so thanks for your question. .my sister is 8 years old and has had alopecia total since she was 6 months or so, now she is completley bald, the cause is a mystery for her geneticists and doctors, what i do know about the disorder from her many many trips to UCLA is that stress is a source that they have linked to the disease, did your daughter have any sort of surgerys prior to the onset?
something someone once said to my sister was that god only made a few perfect heads, all the others he had to put hair on....just thought that could put a smile on your daughters face as it did for my sister :)
My son had the MMR at 2 1/2 years old. I have him on an alternative vaccine schedule...taking things slowly...one vaccine at a time. He has been perfectly healthy...perfect!!! Then this stupid MMR vaccine that I ahve been holding off on and four days later a little bald patch on the back of his head. MMR vaccine is a live virus vaccine, his immune system is learning to fihgt it off and then I learn from our pediatrician alopecia is an immune reaction! Coincidence...possibly,but no one can convince me that our children should be following the American Academy of Pediatrics Immunization Schedule. It is ludricous to put so many toxins into such small bodies.
My son had exactly the same experience with the hep B vaccine when he was 5 years of age (he is 18 now.) He developed a dime-sized bald spot on the back of his head, which eventually progressed to alopecia universalis. This continued for many years until he grew back patchy areas of hair roughly around puberty. Today he is still patchy and the condition gets better in the summer when his exposure to sunlight is greater. Other than that he deals with his hair loss by shaving his head. The condition is capricious and there is no cure and no telling if or when it will turn itself off.
Best to accept the state of affairs and stop attaching so much importance to hair in females. As a support to my son I also shaved off all my hair and I'm his mother, not his dad. I love my look, I love HIS look, and it helps serve to remind him that no one actually needs hair. There is, in fact, nothing at all to worry about. The person with alopecia remains healthy. Good luck!!
This thread is so old. But here I am ten years later and this just happened to my daughter. She received her recharge of HepB in mid May and by June 1st I noticed a bald patch, by August she was totally bald. My question to you...is do you continue giving the Hep series?
