Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi, it seems that you are having alopecia areata progressing to alopecia totalis. It is auto immune disease. Local application of Neopsoralen lotion or minoxidil 10 percent should be tried for few months. Intradermal steroid injection may be taken from competent dermatologist. Imunotherapy with diphenylcyclopropenone may be tried. Oral steroid in tappering dose, biotin , zinc sulphate, levamisole may improve the disease. All the therapeutic procedures should be conducted under supervision of dermatologist.. Ok
