Hi. He needs to be seen by a dermatologist
to diagnose the cause. In cases of alopecia areata
a variety of treatments can be tried. Steroid injections, creams, and shampoos (such as clobetasol or fluocinonide
) for the scalp have been used for many years. Other medications include minoxidil, irritants (anthralin or topical coal tar), and topical immunotherapy
(cyclosporine), each of which are sometimes used in different combinations. Please consult your doctor so that it is reversed on the earliest.
