I discovered a small bald spot on my head in Ausgust of 2017. I went to the dermatologist and received Kenalog shots after the PA looked at it and diagnosed me with alopecia. After the injection, i experienced pain and atrophy. I went back next month to find my spot had grown 2 inches and was almost in tears. She rushed the whole visit and asked if i wanted more injections. Stupidly, i agreed. I was just scared of loosing it all. Now im loosing hair like crazy. I wish i had found all this information and steered clear of the drug! I advise anyone to do some research first, and consider the benefits and risks. Good luck

Oh my goodness! I am seriously experiencing literally the same exact thing. I literally have a bald spot on the back side of my head from the Kenalog. I really don't even know what to do at this point! Except it was my neurologist that give me the injections of kenalog. I went to derm when my hair started falling out to see if they could help and they said it might be permanent. My skull is sunken in and it's completely bald on a back part. I so sad and nervous it's going to continue to get worse.

Triamcinolone is a corticosteroid that is used to treat a variety of conditions, mostly related to topical skin issues. Its side effects may include skin burning, skin thinning, blisters, and increased hair growth in unwanted areas.

I am very sorry about the problems you've both experienced, it sounds like you were rushed into choosing it as an option, and not properly informed of the possible risks and side effects, but I am not a doctor, so I really can't say.

How are you both doing, now? Has there been any change?

Are either of you on any other medications?
