Making the most of your appointment
Talking to your dermatologist
Think about how alopecia areata has affected your life. To help, fill out the Doctor Discussion Guide and bring it to your appointment. If you have any specific questions, write them down.
Your hair history
Talk about any changes in your hair loss. This may include how much hair you’ve lost and where that hair loss occurred. If you've taken any photos over time, be sure to share those with your dermatologist, too.
Your treatment journey
Tell your dermatologist about any treatments that you use or have used for alopecia areata. This will help them understand your treatment history. If possible, take pictures of any medicine labels.
