This is a very common condition. I have seen many. It is called alopecia areata. There is no allopathic treatment for this condition.. At present I have got a case in my own family. My grand son is suffering from this condition. This condition responds some kind of Arurvedic medicin , I got one from south it is a oil with some kind of herbs in it.it does work. Minoxidil is for male type baldness, but that again are not successful. Other methods you have used are very expensive And do not work.

Dear doctor without Complete information please do not make statements like 'no treatment in allopathy'...if you know its alopecia areata just try to read some scientific journals about it and know that it is a self limiting condition and intralesional steroid does help in faster recovery.

Dr Sunitha If there is no follicles then it can't be alopecia areata. It's Pseudo Pelade of Brocq which is sometimes the end stage of alopecia. Nothing can revive the hair, but Dr Rashmi has said hair transplantation can be tried in a small scale and see for viability before proceeding further. Point to note is... The should not be any ongoing or active process. In that case giving Kenacort triamcinolone 10 injection intralesional with insulin syringe with 2 insulin units per prick mainly targeting the border of the lesion can arrest the disease process. A biopsy with DD as Pseudo Pelade of Brocq, lichen plano pilaris.

Thank u doctor.

Just for info It's Finasteride / Dutasteride not Finesteroid Or DutaSteroid... It nothing to do with steroids as many mistake it, they are receptor blockers. But in this case it's not advisable since it has no role to play.

This is alopecia. My father is suffering from this last 15 years.Tried allopathy/homeopathy but got no relief. At last Ayurveda came to rescue. Panchkarma works wonder in sucu cases.This is my personal experience.

DD : Pseudopelade of Brocq. Send for biopsy, highly recommended. Besides highly skilled hair transplant surgeons can give good results with Hair Transplant in such cases.

Mam am doing mesotherapy & prp getting result but slowly. In meso am using peptides & nutritional elements.small patches are in recovering phase but a big patch which is on crown become less but tricoscopy shows no follicles but it is getting narrowing by side.expected for ur opinion
