Alopecia areata

Alopecia areata

Postby lmarathay » Wed Jul 03, 2013 7:26 pm

I have question about a patient with alopecia which began on his chin initially. The circular pattern of hair loss moved about on his chin to under his chin area. After a few years it went to his head, which appears now as 2 prominent ovals ( 3 cm x 4 cm) on the back of his head. An ayurvedic practitioner has him do weekly leech treatment at those spots along with some powders for treating worms in his GI. White hair has started growing but the spot is still visible. What are your thoughts on leech treatments for treating alopecia?

Leach application si one of the best treatment for the same. Also local applications using seeds of Gunja seeds, Karaveera etc.

Usually with repeated application of leach will make the skin to the normal state.
