Good for you to want to start treatment again. I wouldn't give up. Treatments work or don't work differently for different people. I have AA, on and off. Get patches, have injections and laser therapy and it comes back but then something/anything triggers fall out again.
There is something that you might find will work for you, a girl just like you grew all her hair back - she posted it on this forum. I tried the homeopathic treatment she suggested and it halted my shedding (I had TE aswell as AA).
Read this whole thread:
Also if you do decide to do this treatment which is no more then $50 in total then make sure you eat clean.
This is the regimen I did:
-Lymphomyosot drops 2 times per week, 30 drops for 0.5L of water, drink all day long (sometimes all at once) - took until it was gone
-Galium Heel ( from the second week of taking Lymphomyosot - 30 drops for 0,5 liter water bottle – took until it was gone
- Graphites Cosmoplex S (1st month 5-7 drops under tongue 1/day(on an empty stomach), then 2 months 15-20 drops for 0,5 liter water bottle during the day)
a lot of people with autoimmune diseases report good results. But - if you try the complex approach (anti inflammatory diet, good stress management, sleeping, cure any infection you may have) - your chances are much higher. These medicines clear our the cells and intra cells area of any toxins, so just help your body to do it in all other possible ways.
Good luck :)
