Great Forum..Is alopecia barbae reversible? I came across a number of forums that mentioned that the use of cortisone shots in the affected region to be an effective treatment regimen for such syndromes…Do you concur with this?
Alopecia barbae is a variant of alopecia areata, but where alopecia areata refers to spots on the scalp, alopecia barbae would be similar spots in facial hair. This disease has its course, at times may spontaneously reverse, and sometimes can be modified through various treatments (including variations of cortisone placed into the impacted areas).
See the National Alopecia Areata Foundation for more about research and treatment options.
