Girl (pt. 4)
Girl knows the name now: diffuse alopecia areata. She also knows the symptoms: a condition in which hair is lost from all areas of the scalp. Typically begins with small bald patches that are most usually round or oval. Two percent suffer total hair loss across their body. The area of hair loss may tingle or be painful. The condition is not contagious and is thought to be an autoimmune disorder in which the body attracts its own hair follicles and suppresses or stops hair growth. Treatment: steroid injections that usually don’t work, waiting and hoping that the hair grows back on its own, wigs. Girl got a wig for her tenth Christmas. This was after the bald spots reached their tendrils out and joined together and her classmates held her down at recess and outlined the spots with a black marker one May afternoon in a back field so that her head looked like the hexagonally patched surface of a soccer ball. Girl remembers how hot the dirt was. How she could smell the heat in the earth that got rubbed into her favorite shirt while she laid still and unsquirming until they had finished scribbling and stood her up to encircle her and say things about kicking her in the head, but there was no more violence because there was no reaction from Girl. So the students strode silenty off to other parts of the playground in small groups and left Girl standing alone in a field full of weeds, scalp still tingling along the marker lines. Girl didn’t care about her ruined shirt or how long it took her mother to scrub the lines off her head or how hot the water was or the defeated look in her father’s eyes when he heard what happened. The only thing Girl had ever wanted was a dog that knew how to shake. She thought that was the coolest thing in the world. And when Christmas rolled around and her parents told her they had a big surprise that she’d never forget she was cautiously hopeful that there’d be a puppy with a bow around its neck under the tree. Instead she got a box with tissue paper and a wig inside. A blonde one. She’d never even been a blonde. Prognosis: the effects of diffuse alopecia areata are mainly psychological. Because hair loss can lead to significant appearance changes, individuals may experience loss of self image, social phobia, anxiety, and depression.
