"I haven't noticed any new patches since I went on it but the patches on top of my scalp have spread a little and the hair has thinned out. Hard to tell if the prednisolone has done anything at this point as just as much hair has come out in the…"

"Its true. There is no real actual treatment for AA. Or AT/AU for that matter. Steroid shots are very shaky and painful as a treatment. DPCP painful and become ineffective over time. PUVA has been banned in alot of countries and only has 40-50%…"
