Clobetasol Propionate For Allopecia Areata

Updated
sarah Says:

I used 0.05% clobetasol tropical ointment for a month for allopecia and its been 2 months since i stopped using it because my doctor asked me to use it only for a month. I'm wondering if i can use it again as my hair didn't stop falling out and the bald patches are growing bigger? Thank you.

Hello, Sarah! How are you?

These steroids have only been shown to have limited success at treating this condition and the creams/ointments are actually the worst.

Has your doctor offered any other treatment options?

Two days back I found a white patch. When I consulted a doctor he said it is Alopecia areata. And he suggested I take clobetasol propionate and salicylic acid. Is this the right type of medication for it? If not, plz suggest me any other appropriate medicine or ointment. Thank you.
