Parents would give anything to help and see their child's hair return. Unfortunately all too often the first visit to the GP can lead to tears, it seems that most GP's are inadequately prepared to cope with children's AA cases, they would dismiss the sufferer with "your hair will grow back" or at worst possible scenario will look at them as time wasters. In a few cases would tell the parents "buy him/her a wig, they make good quality wigs these days" and walks away.
Hair loss in otherwise healthy children presents several challenges for the clinician. The first task may be to identify the cause, which may be complicated by two or more secondary factors; the second task is to find effective treatments;

Some Doctors fail to recommend or undertake any tests and yet there is clearly a need for some diagnostic tests undertaken. Doctors should routinely order laboratory tests for patients where there is no obvious cause, unfortunately, there are no guidelines and if there are, alopecians are not told. In most cases in the first incident of AA, the majority of cases will have at some stage, a spontaneous response.

It is important to understand that although the disease itself is non-life threatening, the cosmetic and psychological impact on both patients and parents is tremendous and may lead to a high lifetime prevalence rate of major depression and/or generalised anxiety disorders. Mood disorders, especially depression, are common early on in the course of alopecia areata. It is natural to be overcome by fear and depression when facing an uncertain future.

What we alopecians want to hear is some explanations about our hair loss, encouragement and understanding about what the future may hold, AND NOT to be told that an appointment arranged with the local consultant dermatologist is in six or nine months time.
