Seasonal Flank Alopecia

Just wondered if any of your dogs suffered with Seasonal Flank Alopecia.

Zulu was diagnosed with this after having a biopsy done at the vets. This was the first year he had it.
The hair has nearly all grown back now but just wanted to ask, is it worse the first year or does the pattern of baldness each year stay the same?
And also will it be every year or is there an age where it stops?  :?

Kosmo had some hair loss on both his sides this winter. Our vet said it was seasonal alcopecia and that with spring/summer coming the sunlight would be the best thing for it. He said no meds or anything else just sun light.
Kosmo has always had a beautiful shiney almost wet looking coat. As soon as the weather broke and there was more daylight his fur grew right back in and he looks beautiful again so I am a believer in the sunlight cure if it truely seasonal alcopecia.
