Hi,

If the hairs are not growing in bald patch from 9 years,then it may not be alopecia areata. The hair roots may not be there in the skin of patch. It may be pseudopalade of Brocq. Take it easy and accept it. There is no need to take any treatment as there is no chance of growing of hairs in your case.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
