Alopecia areata cannot be cured; however, it can be treated and the hair can grow back.
In many cases, alopecia is treated with drugs that are used for other conditions.
Apart from drug treatments, there are various cosmetic and protective techniques that people with alopecia can try.
If you just received your diagnosis and have had alopecia areata for less than a year, your dermatologist may recommend a wait-and-see approach. Your hair may regrow on its own, making treatment unnecessary.It’s important to know that no one treatment works for everyone. To find one that helps, you may need to try a few types of treatment or different medications.
