I came in with what I thought was a bug bite that didn’t go away for 2 months and they were able to take care of it in a professional way and helped me to understand. It actually turned out to be a skin cancer.

Interesting Case of the Month
Interesting Case —Alopecia Areata
A new patient that came to our office for a patch of hair loss under his chin. He stated that the hair loss had been going on for several months. He has never had hair loss prior to this episode.
What does this patient have? Read More >
This patient has a form of hair loss called Alopecia Areata. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition where the body attacks our hair follicles resulting in circular patches of hair loss. The damage to the hair follicles is generally not permanent. We do not know what causes alopecia areata, but it can be related to other autoimmune diseases such as hyper and hypothyroidism.
There are many treatment options for this type of hair loss. Topical prescription medication can be applied daily to the area along with vitamins that contain saw palmetto and B-12 and the OTC medication Rogaine to maintain hair growth until the body bounces back. For more aggressive cases, steroid injections can be used to stimulate regrowth. We also offer light therapy treatments. This patient opted for just topical medications at this point in time and will be reevaluated in six weeks.
