Alopecia Aereta

I was suffering from alopecia last year and did a homeopathy treatment for an year the problem got solved completely. 

But now it has arrived again with one patch on my head above my ears.
I read about phosphorus 30c being the best medicine basis the symptoms.

I wanted to know the dosage and how should I take it.

Treatment is not mandatory, because the condition is benign, and spontaneous remissions and recurrences are common. Treatment can be topical or systemic.
most cases can be managed with Corticosteroids
Intralesional corticosteroid therapy is usually recommended for alopecia areata with less than 50% involvement. Administration is as follows:
Injections are administered intradermally using a 3-mL syringe and a 30-gauge needle
A concentration of 5 mg/mL is usually sufficient on the scalp
Less than 0.1 mL is injected per site, and injections are spread out to cover the affected areas (approximately 1 cm between injection sites)
Injections are administered every 4-6 weeks...other modalities being immunotherapy, puva therapy, topical monoxidil etc..consult nearest dermatologist they will help you
