Missing Patch in Beard - Alopecia - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I think the best way is to ask a doctor about this.

Good luck!

i have a patch in my facial hair that came from getting my wisdom teeth removed. dental surgery is actually a pretty common cause of patches in facial hair under the jaw.

Clobex is a highly potent topical steroid that has helped some people with Alopecia.

Thats actually really interesting. I had reconstructive jaw surgery in December 2002. I've tried to look at pictures of my face before then to see how the beard was, and the patch was considerably smaller, but I always just chalked it up to me being younger and having a less thick facial hair growth.

But, I always did think this patch was related to that surgery. Very interesting that you have the same situation. I should note that from the surgery in December 2002 (and about 4 follow up surgeries therafter) I have no feeling in my lower lip and chin, and most of my lower gums have no feeling either. Seems more and more to me like this is the culprit.

The same happened to me. I had a patch come while I was super stressed.  New kids, school, terrible job.  It ultimately went away.  It did come back during another stressful period.  I agree it may be stress related.

I have the same thing! And it "migrates" around about an inch area too. I just go with it and make a joke out of it if anyone notices. I think things like that are much better if they're not made into a big deal.
