Have alopecia areata. Used Clomic cream and Miniscalp earlier. Want to know dosage

Dear Sir, I have alopecia areata . It has been coming every year and lasts 2-4 months for the last 5 years. Last time I used the combination of Clomic cream and Miniscalp 2%. But now I forgot the usage and frequency (I think, inital 15 days only clomic and afterwards only miniscalp). Please guide me on the same or suggest me some other medicine. Thanks and reagards, Harikrishnan K

Dear Harikrishan,
Thanks for writing to us.
if we follow exact treatment protocol for alopecia areata and if you have limited number of alopecia patches, intralesional steroid injections every three weeks would offer you best results along with topical steroid like clomic used twice in a day and minoxidil solution 5 percent used once in a day.
if you are just using topical drugs then also clomic and minscalp should be used together and daily.
Hope that answered your query.
take care
