Hi all. I was diagnosed with frontal Fibrosing Alopecia last august '16 (35 yr old man). I had gone to a dermatologist because my eyebrows and beard had been falling out. He then looked at my hair line and noticed little red marks at the hair roots. I have had these little marks since i was in my 20's which never really gave me any cause for concern and my hair had not been falling out on my head. However he said this was part of the condition. He said it was very rare and he'd never seen it in a man. He then started looking up medical journals online to see about the best way to treat it. He suggested some drops for the eyebrows which has worked to a limited extent and my eyebrows have returned a bit but nothing like a full set. However I regretfully agreed to have some steroid injections in my hair line. Since that day i started getting a buzzing and tingling feeling in my head and my hair has started shedding and has receded by over an inch at the front and seems to be thinning elsewhere on my head too.
I know some will think that it would have probably gotten worse anyway but it was literally that night i got this tingling feeling that has not left me since. I feel these injections are not suitable for FFA for some reason as they have definitely made my case much worse (on my head).
Anyway i have started going to get accupunture. I've only been twice and i feel it is having a positive effect. The buzzing is reducing and my eyebrows seem to have little hairs appearing. No change on the beard front yet.
Just thought I'd share this and will keep you posted.
Has anyone else tried accupunture?
