So, I've been doing a bit of research into alopecia. I'm not sure if I have it yet. One of my great uncles and one of my great aunts have alopecia. Apparently, he had an outbreak (correct term?? lol) of alopecia once, and his doctor suggested he buy white iodine and put it on his bald spots. He said within 2 months the hair had grown in on the bald spots and was almost as long as his natural hair. He hasen't had alopecia since. I hadent seen anything on here that mentioned white iodine so I thought I would mention that it worked for him.
