Question  My wife is suffering from hair loss and is wondering whether she has Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia.  Her hairline is receding in a way more typically associated with male-pattern baldness and she has short miniaturised hairs along her fringe-line and other hairs further back miniaturising too.   Can she rule out FF alopecia as a possible cause or can miniaturised hairs occur in that condition too?   I'd be grateful for any advice on this from this forum that I could pass on.   thanks.

CDundee...please encourage your wife to see her GP and request a referral to your nearest hospital Dermatology Department so that a biopsy can be performed to determine whether or not she has FFA.  Only once she has been diagnosed, or FFA ruled out, can a form of treatment be recommended.
