Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

The course of typical alopecia is not predictable with a high likelihood of spontaneous remission. The longer the period of time of hair loss and the larger the area involved, the less likely the hair will regrow. Therefore, there are a variety of treatments, but none of these can confidently be predicted to impact the course of this disease.

Treatment options are Minoxidil solution is a non-prescription medication approved for alopecia. Hair regrowth can take 8 to 12 months. Treatment is continued indefinitely because if the treatment is stopped, hair loss resumes again.

Other options like 5 alfa reductase inhibitor, anthralin, steroids can be used.

Treatment of dandruff is directed at fighting the skin inflammation. Shampoo's containing tar, salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, ketoconazole can be helpful, All are available over the counter. You can use any of these either all of the time or just once or twice a week, depending on how severe your symptoms are.

Additional types of medication that help seborrhea are cortisone creams and antifungal creams.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
