Loss of hairs ... Alopecia

I was born in 1988. At age of 4 years, I suffered from Typhoid. Due to effect of typhoid, all my hairs fell off. I was diagnosed with alopecia. Treatment went on several years and some success was there. But, hairs continued to fall. In 2010, I went to KGMC hospital, Lucknow for treatment, which showed positive signs. But after my marriage in 2011, treatment was interrupted. I wish to regrow my hairs. Please confirm if it is possible and how it can be done. Is hair transplant from other donor a solution for this, because I don’t have enough follicles? My donor area is also has very thin hairs. What are requirements to take transplant from others? Also I don’t know, if my scalp can support hair. I cannot take any steroids. Please advise if anything can be done to treat my scalp first and then transplant.

This just endlessly repeats in this cycle and is getting annoying.wt to do
