Options for treating alopecia areata


Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that affects nearly 2 % of the world’s population. The condition is autoimmune in nature, which means that the patient’s own immune system is attacking the hairs. Treatments that reduce inflammation can often be helpful – although spontaneous regrowth can occur in some patients even without treatment.

Options for Treating AA:

Steroid injections, also known as “steroid shots” are helpful treatments for many patients with several patches of alopecia. Steroid injections are less effective for widespread alopecia areata – and other options need to be considered in this situation. Too often I hear patients say “Is there anything else besides shots?”

Beyond Shots

Steroid injections are extremely important for many patients and if done properly present a treatment option with reasonably good efficacy and quite good safety. I think a lot of people are surprised when I say there are at least 25 different treatment options for alopecia areata other than ‘shots.’  Here I’ve listed the treatment options for alopecia areata

Topical Treatments
Topical steroids
Topical bimatoprost
Essential oils
Squaric acid
Topical tofacitinib
Topical ruxolitinib
Onion juice
Garlic gel

Oral Treatments

Zinc supplements


There are many treatments that can be considered for patients with alopecia areata.  Steroid injections are helpful for many patients and should never be discounted. But patients who find that steroid injections did not help have numerous other options available to discuss with their dermatologists.
