I am really sad due to my hair loss. I have always had a thick and full head of hair. The one thing people would compliment me on was my hair. It has really been hard to keep up my confidence when the patches can be noticed. I am using Clobetasol ointment and getting injections and it seems to be working, but I just found a new patch. I am really sad knowing that it isn't cured. I have asked my doctor if i can use makeup to conceal the bald spots. He suggested that I don't b/c it may inhibit the absortion of the medicine. The ointment makes my hair really greasy and that makes it easier to see the spots. Before i knew what it was i had shown it to my friends. Now I am so embarassed of it. When they ask me about it I have to fight back tears.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
