It is very difficult to treat alopecia universalis. You could try microneedling or dermaroller for scalp hair. I have seen partial improvement with it. Also you may need to he out on certain immune suppressants like methotrexate (also used in psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis). Results are very variable and I suggest you try the treatment before you lose the rest of your hair. Take care. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
