Embrace it: Hi Rishi -- If this is alopecia areata, no Rx works. The old "oral mini-pulse" glucocorticoid treatments that were tried a while back were a disappointment, as you know. Nobody notices that the Mona Lisa lacks eyebrows, and they won't care about yours. I have two friends with this -- athletic men, and they both love it -- clean, tidy, macho. Best choice -- get really fit and it'll be a plus. ...Read more

Get evaluated: I'm betting you've got alopecia areata. I've got a doctor friend who has it and loves being totally smooth. The treatments (glucocorticoids, cyclosporine) are worse than the disease, by far. Hit the fitness circuit, remember that 95% of your looks is how fit you are and this is completely under your control, and remember how many men who are sex-symbols shave everything. Best wishes. ...Read more

Fearing Alopecia areata in 5 yr daughter due to thinning eyebrows. Saw a dermatologist who felt the hair showed some growth. Vitamin d is deficient.?

Not vitamin: Usually, but not always, A. Areata is obvious. If that is the correct diagnosis it will correct itself in months, but is likely to recur. "Thinning eyebrows" is not enough to diagnose this. No vitamin belongs in this discussion. ...Read more

See a dermatologist: There is no cure for alopecia areata. Hair often re-grows on its own. Treatment can help the hair re-grow more quickly. A dermatologist may give you corticosteroids, minoxidil, anthralin, diphencyprone (dpcp), and other treatments. Some treatments are combined, but if you would the hair to grow back faster I recommend seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more
