Ms. Toni, I too was diagnosed with both forms of alopecia. My diagnoses was a result of certain hair products and hair styles. I went to a dermatologist and a regime/scalp injections were used and my scalp didn’t respond to years of treatment. A year later a car accident caused me to have to take several different pain medicines and as a result handfuls of hair came out. My scalp was literally bald and smooth to the touch. It appeared that the follicles were completely I had to cover my scalp using hair tracks. My hairstylist has been very patient and helpful in covering up my bald patches predominately on the top and side of my head. She has basically made me a toupee that is sewn into a swirled braid with the little hair I have on top. (covered by a hairnet to protect my hair from track damage. ) The track hair is attached by the hairnet and looks great . It’s been 6-8 years of dealing with this condition that I finally decided to try essential oil’s . I did my research and eventually went to my local vitamin store and bought a carrier oil such as almond oil, jojoba oil or castor oil and mixed it with 10 drops of lavender oil, 10 drops of peppermint oil, and Rosemary. After 6+ years of total boldness hair began to grow after three months of use . I wore a wig that my stylist made for me during this the hair is thin however it’s still hair. Today as I search the Internet for more ideas I’ve decided to add Cedar wood oil also . With your child being so young I would contact your dermatologist to make sure that my concoction won’t be too strong for her scalp. ( I believe it is) Never use the oils without a carrier oil. I pray that this is helpful to you as I know this can be very depressing , discouraging and embarrassing.
In the refractory anaplastic astrocytoma population, the overall tumor response rate (CR+PR) was 22% (12/54 patients) and the complete response rate was 9% (5/54 patients). The median duration of all responses was 50 weeks (range: 16–114 weeks) and the median duration of complete responses was 64 weeks (range: 52–114 weeks). In this population, progression-free survival at 6 months was 45% (95% CI: 31%–58%) and progression-free survival at 12 months was 29% (95% CI: 16%–42%). Median progression-free survival was months. Overall survival at 6 months was 74% (95% CI: 62%–86%) and 12-month overall survival was 65% (95% CI: 52%–78%). Median overall survival was months.
