Hi there,



Thankyou for your post. My husband has had alopecia areata almost totalis for around 4 years since we got back from Bali. I queried whether it was parasites and mentioned to the doctors that we had been to Bali but they ignored it. He also has a raised liver count! After seeing your post, we will go straight to the doctors to ask for him to be tested for parasites and fingers crossed! I hope we all see results!
