Hi,

Alopecia areata is patchy loss of hair. It is associated with autoimmune disorders Since hypothyroid is autoimmune disorder it is associated but not due to hypothyroid per se. Yes halos lotion and melanocyl lotion works in alopecia areata in mild cases. If it is severe we should use oral steroids and vitamin-D3 supplements and intra-lesional steroids.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
