It depends on which type of "alopecia" you are referring to. There are over 100 different types. Minoxidil is only FDA appoved for us in androgenetic alopecia (sometimes referring to as male balding and female balding). However, sometims it can also be used for patients with alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune condition causing hair loss in patches. There are a few other types of "alopecia" that minoxidil can be used in as well.
