Dear user,

Alopecia areata is a condition of unknown cause that has a tendency to either persist for long or to remit and recur at intervals. Cystitis is an inflammation of the urinary bladder, most probably caused by a bacterial infection. Both these are separate conditions, and not just one condition. To reduce cystitis, you would have to give her lots and lots of fluids to flush out the infection and take antibiotics as per the advice of her doctor. For alopecia areata, most doctors recommend courses of steroid applications. Immunotherapy has also been tried for severe cases, but this is outside the purview of a general answer.
