Alopecia areata after pregnancy - advice

Hi All,

I’m looking to get some advice regarding treatment. I was diagnosed with alopecia 5 months postpartum, I had a big patch on the sides of my scalp. Doctor said it could turn into alopecia totalis, so I was on Kenalog injection 5 months and all my hair grew back. Within a month of the last dose alopecia areata recurred and  this time I lost 75% of my hair in a month . Due to covid-19 doctors recommended me to take oral dexamethisone for a month and unluckily there was no improvement, I only lost more hair. Now the docotra suggest Cellsept or JAK inhibitors. But, right now I have come to an acceptance about my hair and I am okay with wearing a wig. What do you guys suggest? Should I still give JAK inhibitors a try ?
