    Rohan Ray,

    As I’m sure you are aware, there is no cure for alopecia areata. However, there are treatments other than Rogaine including, Diprolene and Temovate.

    All drugs carry the potential for adverse side effects. I suggest discussing any treatments options with a dermatologist specializing in hair loss.

    I’ve had alopecia areata for the past ten years now. I first lost my hair when I was ten, and its been an on and off thing since then. Every time the hair grows back, and I cut down on Minoxidil, it seems to revert to the patches. I’m wondering, is there any way to ensure it doesn’t come back once its more or less gone? ANd are there any non-minoxidil medications that may be taken to ensure that the disease is kept at bay; and which have no side effects?

    Unfortunately, there is no cure for Alopecia Areata. However, in many cases, hair loss due to Alopecia Areata does return on it’s own in several months. If you haven’t already, you may want to consult with a dermatologist who can go over your treatment options with you, most of which, will probably improve the chance of full hair restoration. In the meantime, you may want to try to get creative with hairstyles that can help to conceal the area of baldness.

    All the best in successful hair restoration,
