Our expert says:
There are just 2 proven medications that helps to regrow hair: propecia and minoxidil. The drug used in Propecia is used for enlarged prostrates and can't be used by women. Minoxidil can be used by men and women. It stimulates hairgrowth but is expensive and needs to be used constantly. Alopecia areata is thought to be an autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks its own hair follicles and suppresses or stops hair growth. In this case only suppressing your own immunity will make a difference in the disease. I know this sounds funny but you should maybe see a rheumatologist ( they are specialists in auto immune diseases) as you may need more specialized treatment. Please let me know in which area you live and I can maybe give you a name of someone nearby?
