My Pocket Ached Much Today

After lunch today, I filed for undertime. I went to the clinic of my dermatologist. She examined my two bald spots and said that the other one has some tiny growing hairs already although, they are gray ones which is how it grows when you had a bald spot. The other one was alopecia areata indeed, though small. The other part is thinning hairs. So, she injected on those two spots. I will have my injection every two weeks for 3 months . She then, prescribed me minoxidil for 3 months, to be applied on the two bald spots evening and morning. She also prescribed me a hair thickening shampoo. The injection is for $7.40 (PhP370) , the minoxidil for $12.60 (PhP630) and the Hair Thickening shampoo is for $15.20 (PhP760). But the injection though isn’t painful. She let me breath deeply, as she injects. It’s my pocket that said Ouch!

No not yet. But i used onion juice in one of the baldspots. That is why it already has hairs.

@SIMPLYD I see. I would not allow myself to have that treatment for the sake that I am scared of the outcome when it's not good. I hope your treatment is successful.

@thelme55 We have proven the interventions as very good. Our hairs grew back and the alopecia areata were all covered. So that is why, I know that I have to see the dermatologist again.

Thank you. But you know the bald apot which has some hairs growing, is the product of my massaging onion juice in that spot.

@responsiveme Yes, I massage the onion juice 30 minutes before shampooing, at least 3 time a week. It prevents falling hair. You can feel baby hairs on your applied parts after two weeks.

Oh indeed it really is ouchy on your wallet. One good thing about it is we have an extra 13th month pay this month so money is a bit okay for such emergencies for medical problems.

@SIMPLYD That is just in time for the emergency to happen. I think you should set aside money for that in the coming treatments.

The injection are for the bald spots. It hastens the growth of hairs. Although , initially they will be gray hairs. Minoxidil too is for those. Yes, that is true, specially with the dermatology applications.

Well, we cannot avoid to spend like this, when our health or physical condition is already involved. So, I don't mind the cost anymore, because anyway, we were also given our 13th month yesterday.

That too is a costly place to go. Consultation alone is for 500 pesos. How much more the frames and the lenses and those optical drops.

I know they do because I have experienced this 4 years ago. But the thickening shampoo since i have thinning parts already (aging process), is yet to be tested.

My eye-drops cost me $16.95 and I think it is just a borax mix which I could easily make at home. I'll know next time.

It does not matter for spending money if your hair grow naturally after the injection. I hope you will get good results for spending much.

It really hurts on our pocket when we undergo treatment on some medical and health issues. We have no choice otherwise we will suffer. Actually, it two way suffering on both sides; financial and health but I chose to spend because we could still find ways to earn.
