Welcome to the forum LoriT.
Inflammatory conditions of the scalp can certainly cause hair loss and in some cases scaring alopecia.
Dr. Alan Feller of New York just answered a question about chronic inflammation of the scalp and PRP therapy.
You can read the entire thread here:
And the answer is yes.
I had a patient come for intractable inflammation of the scalp that caused endless itching. He tried everything without success, including prescription medication.
We performed PRP on him about 6 months ago. He reported back to us about 2 weeks after we treated him that he had complete relief. With only one patient as a sample size I can't say conclusively that it was the reported anti-inflammatory effect of the PRP or just a placebo effect. But it's certainly encouraging.
