I have just been diagnosed as having alopecia areata . A private demeratologist has prescribed livogen solution for the morning and betnovate capilar at night plus Vigorix tablet twice per day. The National health GP has said that i should use Ketoconazol Gel once a week and Lactisona Hidrocortisone every day. I am confused as I also suffering with Seborric eczema and don t want to make it any worse.
