I have had two bald /very thin patches diagnosed by dermatologist as alopecia areata three years ago.I believe stress started it but I'm not stressed now.I have tried steriod cream,various shampoos etc but nothing has worked so far.
They are at the back of my head and covered by my mid length fine hair and I have managed to ignore it most of the time.I would love it to grow back and spend money on possible cures from time to time.
I haven't tried minoxidil yet and I wondered if anyone had tried it with any success ?Any adverse side effects?Ive not tried steriod injections as have read that once you stop using them the hair falls out again.The dermatologist did say it may just grow back and sometimes seems to grow a few hairs but not enough to cover the patches.Has anyone found anything that works ?
