I am sorry for your symptoms.

I would be happy to answer any other medical concerns you have.

I am again very sorry for your inconvenience.

This is a self-limiting condition and almost in all resolves spontaneously in 6-12 months.

The treatments are;

1) Steroid shots at bald spots.

2) Minoxidil application.

3) Diphencyprone

4) Anthralin.
