Respected professional collegues please do suggest yr experience in treating the below case. 26yr/M ; Alopecia areata (Tinea Capitis) since 6 months. There was only two tiny spots like that, it aggravated soon after taking injectable steroids in last 6 months.



Thanks for tagging Dr Iyer . The history of no response/ agravation on inj.steroids as well as smoth shiny bald patches with no sign of any hairfollicle having a trace of sign of hair makes me think that it might be a case of civatrical ( scaring) alopecia where hair follicles are destroyed by inflamatory reaction. No signs of inflamation or scar may be visible becsuse the process occurs below the skin at the level of hair follicle opening which along with sebacious glands are destroyed. One can be sure of this by biopsy only and trichoscopy may help in DD. With this note u may seek the help of a good dermatologist. Nonresponse might be because of follicular destruction and what u call agravation might be just die to ' progression of the underlying disease' Biopsy also settled the point if the process is still active or burnt out. Your two questions are answered in my own perspective. You always tag a number of specialists and one of your diverse arrows may stike the bulls eye. Good luck Sir.
