Hi Ashok;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Alopecia totalis is a auto-immune disease so there is always some underlying cause inside our body so treatment although possible is a bit difficult and it takes time to recover.Presently please consult a Dermatologist and get investigated (do a routine blood tests as well as for thyroid to rule out Myxedema).He will advise treatment for the problem.
All the best for a speedy recovery.
Thanks

What are the treatments available for gynecomastia in Maharashtra? Dear Sir, I am suffering from the gynecomastia. I am 24 years male. I am suffering from last 4 years. I had did lot of exercises such as push -ups, running, yoga etc. to reduce my chest fat but it didn t help me. Due to the chest exercise my chest has been developed more. I had also referred to a well known Chest Physician and also referred to a Endocrinologist they were said me for a certain Harmone and thyroid tests such as hemoglobin, CORTISOL , TESTOSTERONE, TOTAL THYROSINE, TOTAL TRIODOTHYRONINE, TOTAL SIMULATIN HORMONE, FSH, LH, PROLACTINE, ESTRADIOL (E2) etc. I have also done my sonography test USG- BREASTS AND USG - SCROTUM. and I have also did my chest x-ray. The all aforesaid tests are normal. Endocrinologists suggested me for a Liposuction Surgery from plastic surgeon. Its embarrassing me because my chest size is continuous developing (Not Even Fat but the chest bones also). I would like to know that, Is there any other treatment available for gynecomastia? Is there any test like hormone test or other is left? What should I do? and How effective and safer treatment is Plastic surgery for Gynecomastia?

I am having syphilis and already treated by a dermatologist 2 months ago and it is still positive I was given antibiotics Vibramycin and Pantozol 20 for 15 days and advised to retest but it was positive and then suggested by the same doctor to continue medicine for 15 days more and gone through an other test which was again positive yet doctor said no more medicine it should come down to negative over the time but how long she never explained I personally visited several sites they discussed on syphilis and shows horrified results coz it is something always remain in the blood even after getting tested as negative so not syphilis but something else like other infection I was told earlier that penciline injection is good but I live in Abu Dhabi and its not allowed very openly at the same time its available but only on strong recommendation having told that it may have huge side effects such as causing death yet I know its available but im hesitant weather I should go for that or not going through 2 different doctor ( one is lady doctor being dermatologist one is a male doctor who is actually known for treating HIV and Syphilis patients) lady doctor says with injection it may come down little early but the other one said it doesn t effect much but having bad effects so im confused about what to do next im already terminated from my job after going through the screening test it was not required for visa but for my company pre-employment criteria and was told something totally dangerous that syphilis might carry HIV virus which shows only after 5 to 6 months when I was diagnosed syphilis 2.5 months ago I had gone through HIV test which was negative please tell me after going through my history im going to be 35 years old man in few months. thanks
