Ive gone through images and the reports.
You have been given correct treatment so far.
Your diagnosis was kept as ALOPECIA AREATA which is correct.
It is an autoimmune condition.
You are growing hairs in the patches which is a good thing.

Keeping the present treatment continued you should start on keraglo XXXXXXX capsule one per day.
Also Injection kenacort at the base of bald patches will be helpful.
Also vitamin D3 level is just borderline normal.
Vitamin D3 supplement twice in a week would be helpful.

With these additions your hair loss will also be controlled.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.
