I myself am a doctor (neurologist), having alopecia areata ( with probably some scarring ) for last around 15 years, having variable sized patches, relapsing course, tried all sorts of treatment. In allopathy had taken short courses of short courses of steroids too. Had partial responses but records again. Not taken any other immunosuppresion. Currently taking l- tyrosine from Richfeel clinic (for probable immunomodulatory role I think). Now having approx 10x8 cm patch in occipital scalp region. Needed an opinion, whether I Shud go ahead with further immunosuppresion or any other option ?
