Question Alopecia?

I'm 37 years old.
at 29, I had Pancreatitus with no other health issues

Just last week I noticed a dime sized spot on my chin of missin facial hair on the right side of my face.

2 days later I noticed on top my head, 2 dime sized spots of hair missing, also on the right side.

I went to Grouphealth and the Dr. just siad, yes, I think your right. Alopecia.

She has sent me to see a dermotologist.

I don;t know if I am keen on seeing a dermotologist. That is just treating the symptoms. Shouldn't I be seen by some other specialist or have a ton of tests done? She only ran 5 blood tests on me.

Shouldn't I see if this is from a food allergy, or maybe a gluten issue etc..

The way I see it: If every night your car window gets broken, you don;t just go get it replaced, you go after the cause of the broken window, not just fix it.

Anyone else understand where I am going with this theory?

I have also been under an enormous amount of stress for the past 6 weeks. The Dr. said that they have nothing in common.

How can she say this when just 2 minutes prior she stated that she doesn't know anything about Alopecia and that my guess is basically as good as hers. All she confirmed is that it wasn't ringworm.

Thank you
