Scarring alopecia….

I’ve searched the whole of Mumsnet and only seen this mentioned once 😔…

I’m in my early 30’s and I’ve just been diagnosed with AGA and LPP (scarring alopecia) along with TE from having my baby 6 months ago. So sadly, I have 3 forms of hair loss all happening at the same time, which makes treatment and progress a bit confusing. Hopefully, the postpartum loss should improve and the treatment I am on will stop the scarring/inflammation and then I’m just left with trying to manage Androgenic Alopecia / Female Pattern Baldness for as long as possible and as well as possible.

I’m trying so hard to be positive, treat the condition and be a good mum BUT I’m terrified, it never crossed my mind to think I’d be facing something like this at my age. I’m not ready to lose my hair and I can’t tell if the internet/support groups just have a negative bias and there is hope for me with the right treatment or if I am doomed to just go slowly bald. I’m not sure I can face it, I’m devastated and scared.

Is there anyone on hear who has the same thing or knows someone with it?! Xx
