What is the cure for alopecia areata?

Hi Doctor

My daughter is 10 yrs old. She has alopecia areata from the age of 4 yrs. We have tried several medications with many doctors. At last tried Ayurveda also with no relief. All say its not curable. She is having bigger patches now. Im concerned. What is the remedy for this.
