Give me a rash to cure me? Anyone know anything about this procedure?

Hi guys , I recently went to the dermatologist for my monthly scalp shots. The hair that grew back is gone. For a minute there I really thought that everything was going in the right direction. I have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease, so for the last three months I have been gluten and dairy free. I also did a allergy test and it showed that I was allergic to dairy right die yellow diamond blue dye. I have been so good and my hair grew back a little bit . But it's gone again The doctor mentioned that he wanted to do some type of a new procedure where there is a type of rash that he makes happen on my scalp. So for two weeks I'm not able to wear my wig. I'm devastated about it because I'm still not coming to terms with this alopecia . I was wondering if anyone heard of this procedure. And then he gave me a shot to put steroids into my muscle so it could travel throughout the whole body. I have alopecia universalis--no hair on my body--and it happened sudden. If anyone can share a story, if they have done that treatment on your scalp where there is a rash and what they have gone through, please let me know. Thank you

I have been offered this too, would love to know if it would work for me.  I get the impression your falls out again once treatment stops. But I can't find enough info. If you search Diphencyprone you might get more info.  I just realised you posted this message in February.  Did you go ahead and do it.? If you did, how did you get on?

Yes I did . It's working. Right eye lashes came in , hair on scalp is growing. I go again today and I will see what the dermatologist has to say.
