It sounds like you already have a diagnosis. But a visit to a derm will provide you with your options. Some experience success with treatment, others do not. There are many folks who are diagnosed and within a year all hair returns. Visit NAAF (National Alopecia Areata Foundation for more information. And the social networking site: is also a wonderful resource that can provide much needed support. I've had alopecia for 25 years myself. To read my story, visit Best of luck to you!

in the meantime you can use flutivate cream twice daily. Intralesional triamnicolone injections is one of the most effective and first line treatment. Visit your dermatologist regarding this.

its common to have as you can see from the responses you got. It can be precipitated by stress mostly. you can use minoxidil lotion on your scalp 1 ml twice a day & it will help but you need to use it for atleast 4-6 months to see complte effect.
