Hi there: Since last February of 2006, I have been getting cortisone injections in my scalp every 6 weeks. I definitely notice regrowth after a few months of where I was injected, but I continue to just lose hair and I have diffuse thinning all over. A year (and then some) has passed, and I think it is time to just give it up. I know I read somewhere that if cortisone injections don't work after 6 months you should discontinue. Also, in this last round that were 6 weeks ago, I still have the indentations in my scalp where the injections were done and I don't think that that can be good, can it? I have no idea what I have. Every doctor says something different... I either have Diffuse Alopecia Areata, Androgenetic Alopecia or CTE. I think I have had 5 scalp biopsies done and none are conclusive. I guess my question is this.... I have a dermatology appt. on Friday of this week and I think after a year and then some, I think she should just give my scalp a miss and not do any cortisone injections. They have definitely helped my eyebrows, but I don't see that I should waste the time or money in my scalp anymore. Thanks for letting me ramble... I look forward to anyone's responses!!
