My hair started frontal thinning 6 months ago and now i am almost completely bald up front. i have two questions.
1. does it make sense it fell out so fast?
2. i’ve been visiting a dermatologist and he said it was a form alopecia and he injected it with steroids. not to insult his credentials but it doesn’t look like any of the alopecia pictures i seen online and my hairline is starting to look like my dads could it be a misdiagnosis.
Really, you didn’t supply any information to work with here. If you are a male, injecting steroids in male pattern balding could be very damaging. If you are a female, it may not be as damaging as with a male, but I am not familiar with the benefits unless your doctor thinks that you have some autoimmune form of alopecia.
Alopecia is just another word for “hair loss” — so unless there is a defined form of alopecia (such as alopecia areata), I’m not sure what your doctor diagnosed you with. You should go back to that doctor and find out what your condition is and be sure to ask as many questions as you need to. Open communication between doctor and patient is a really beneficial thing to both parties.
