Hello and welcome to XXXXXXX

Alopecia reata is an autoimmune disease. In this disease auto antibodies are produced against the hair roots.
Auto antibodies are antibodies produced against self tissues.
It is not possible to strenghten the hair follicles in this condition.
The treatment for this condition is primarily steroids. You will need to consult a dermatologist for the prescription of treatment.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.
