I had a couple of bald patches on my beard about an year ago. I consulted a dermatologist and he provided some solution which helped in growing the hairs back. Now the patches have started to appear again and they are bigger in size this time. What should I do? Is is possible to fix it permanently?
Thanks in advance!

Hello, as my esteemed colleague has rightly stated, you have alopecia areata. Treatment options include intralesional injections, topical applications etc. Visit a dermatologist to get treated. Regards, Dr. Shruti Jadhav Devershi, Sólskin Professional Dermacare, Kharadi, Pune.
What you have is alopecia areata. It is an autoimmune condition and is usually a 'tendency' of the skin. In your case, it's YOUR skins tendency so every time you get stressed (mentally or physically) etc you might or might not develop this patch in the future. So there is unfortunately no cure to this. But It is completely treatable.
Visit a dermatologist near you (allopathic) Avoid using the same medications as last time .
