O.k I was just diagnosed with Alopecia Areata yesterday..wonderful! So anyway, part of my treatment was a cortizone shot..I THOUGHT this would go on the scalp but instead the nurse said it would go on my bottom! I was a bit shocked! She said it was "slow releasing" which I thought was a good thing..but I didn't ask the obviouse, WHY on the bottom? From what my husband understood it's because I have thinning all over, not one particular bald spot..so the shot would help distribute the cortizone evenly. Any thoughts? Has anyone had this done? (doctor said he only gives 3 of these MAX a year). TIA!
