teenager with sudden onset of significant hair loss
Thank you for reaching out! I hope this medication works for my daughter. It’s just hard to see her hair falling out every single day. I just pray she doesn’t go bald.

Our dermatologist has prescribed Hydroxychloroquine for alopecia areata but it does not seem to slow down the hair loss. Does anyone have other suggestions as to what might be causing her hair loss? We are treating her thyroid with Synthroid. Thank you!
