After a couple of years of yo-yo Alopecia I wrote to my doctor quoting a couple of 'miracles' that had been reported in the papers. One woman had taken steroids for a chest infection and her Alopecia Totalis went and she now has a full head of hair.
The second miracle was a Rheumatoid Arthritis drug. HMy doctor vetoed this [even though I do suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis] as it is quite dangerous, but has offered to refer me to a Dermatologist for a course of Steroid injections in my head.
Has anyone tried this - does it work. More importantly does it hurt and does it have any side effects, like weight gain.
