All with negative results. Is there any proven treatment, and if not, what can I hope for?
Alopecia universalis, also known as alopecia areata is a condition that causes round patches of hair loss.
No fully effective treatments are available. Typical therapy includes:
* Steroid injection under the skin surface
* Topical corticosteroids
* Ultraviolet light therapy
Irritating drugs may be applied to hairless areas to cause the hair to regrow.
Full recovery of hair is common. However, some people may have a poorer outcome, including those with:
* Alopecia areata at a young age
* Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
* Long-term alopecia
