Hi.Your history suggests that you maybe having Alopecia Areata which is an Autoimmune condition characterised by patchy hair loss.It does tend to recur because of its etiology.However it can be easily controlled and treated with suitable medicines.You may require an intralesional injection of Triamcinolone 10 mg/ml as well.Kindly rever back with your pics so that I can help you with the treatment. Regards, Dr.Sanchit Talwar, MD (Skin & VD), Consultant Dermatologist, Dr Talwar's Skin, Laser and Cosmetic Clinic, CHANDIGARH.
