Can anyone help...question about syphilis
« on: January 05, 2007, 08:26:07 AM »
Hey guys, hope some kind soul out there can help me  ;D

Last March I had secondary syphilis (test results was 1 in 128 I think) and had patchy hair loss on my head.  It generally looked a bit moth eaten and I had small circular bald patches dotted around my scalp.  I was told I could probably expect it to grow back after the syphilis had been treated.

Well 9 months later, I don't think it's going to grow back, at least not without any help.  My syphilis is now down to 1 in 8 but regrowth of hair has been minimal.  Where it has regrown, it is sparse and extremely fine, but other areas have shown no improvement.  Whenever I bring it up at the clinic they seem generally disinterested and never really say anything about it.  Some people have said it isn't very noticeable but it is to me!

Does anyone have any suggestions about what I should be doing?  Should I be resigned to it not growing back?  :'(
