hi i am a girl from India. i am 31 yrs old. i am suffering from Alopecia Ophiasis type since in was 1 1/2 yrs of age ! i had taken steroid injections in the affected area and also taken medication for the same . after steroid injections i recovered my hair but once it was stopped all the grown hair fell off and till today it hasnt regrown !
Ophiasis is a snake band like baldness which stretches from one ear to the other ! since its at the back of my head it doesnt show much but like any of you here i cant tie my hair or do anything with it ! luckily i do have my scalp hair except the back part of it because when i lift my hair up its bald from back so i cant tie my hair !
also recently i started having bald patches around my scalp ! i fear my alopecia areata is progressing now and soon it will effect all my scalp hair !~

Can you please suggest me if there is any kind of treatment for Alopecia Areata Ophiasis type condition !

thank you

I am so sorry to hear about your Alopecia Areata Ophiasis condition. Hair loss for men is horrible, but hair loss for women is beyond our male minded comprehension. I pray that your condition will improve. I'm not a doctor but the only two methods that I am aware of for treating this illness is either steroid injection or ultraviolet therapy. Both supposedly have a good success rate so all I can recommend is that you see your doctor and take action to correct your condition. It can be cured!

Best of success to you!
