Alopecia areata
I have alopecia areata from past 1.5 years. I had multiple patches on my head, which healed. Again I am having new patches in my forehead which are increasing in size. I have tried for injections for previous patches and medications as mentioned. Should I change the medications? Any other suggestions..? Any precautions and do's/don't's..? M really worried 🤒🤕

Alopecia areata has a variable outcome. Kindly consult your dermatologist again. If it is spreading too much, weekend steroid tablets under supervision may be needed for few months. It usually gives good results. Another option is phototherapy , when other treatments fail.
