Are you male? It's different if a woman is bald. Our hair is a part of what makes us us. Thinning hair I think I can deal with, but bald? No thank you. I hope this is just a temporary thing.

One of the side effects listed for Arava is hair loss. I've been on Arava for about 2 1/2 years and at first my hair was falling out very badly! Now it seems to have slowed down a lot. I'm a women so this was very upsetting but my hair has been growing back in. Still on Arava.
