I've been prescribed steroid medication and scalp solution does anybody else have this and how do you c ope with the thoughts that this might. Not work
I have been diagnosed as having this complaint well over a year ago but was told it was conected to another complaint Lichen Planus for which they gave me dermovate cream (to use down below!) I was never told to put it on my scalp. I would do though if it works for you - please keep in touch.
I found the whole thing about losing my hair very distressing but it does not seem to have got any worse and I have now had long hair chopped off and a different hairstyle with a fringe to cover it, which mostly works unless I am out in the windy weather etc.
What is the name of the scalp solution? I may try it.
Good luck! Let me know how you get on.
Thanks for reply Kath, I may ask my doctor for the liquid version to put on my scalp as the cream is too greasy. I assume you know that hydroxychloroquine is an anti-malarial drug? Its pretty toxic stuff with lots of side effects (loss of vision probably the most serious!) I'm afraid I couldn't bear taking it for too long so stopped. Perhaps it was the wrong thing to do......................
I hope all goes well for you. Stay in touch if you want someone to talk to.
