I am the mom to a 9 year old little girl. Back in Aug. I started to notice a very small baldish spot near the crown of her head. Since she has been known to cut her hair I asked and she said no. It continued to get larger and I took her to the doctor. He told me it was Alopecia Areata and sent me home. I had read some info on trich and really didnt buy the alopecia idea. In oct we moved out of state and when she saw her new doc, he said no it wasnt alopecia it was trich. Well, Nov-Dec the hair grew back. It was only about an inch but it was growing. About 2 weeks ago, I noticed a new patchy spot. In the course of these weeks, the entire top of her head is nothing much more then stubble and her eyebrows are almost gone now. Once again back to the doctor and now he feels its a fungal thing on her head and wants to medicate her for 8 weeks. I am more confused now then ever. She has no sore spots, inflammed areas on her scalp or eyebrows....just the stubble. She has a huge father daughter dance coming up for Valentines day and I would like thoughts on letting her wear a wig...she is becoming self conscience of her hair and wearing hats or scarves to cover her head. Can anyone please help me?
