I was recently diagnosed with LPP due to severe itching I was experiencing. I had a scalp biopsy to confirm it. They gave me doxycyline & topical prednisone. I only used the prednisone a couple times for the severe itching outbreak which reduced about 80%, but due to the bad side effects I didn't want to continue using prednisone. I've used Emu oil in the past for my scalp and it's very nice. It is nice oil that doesn't clog pores, has anti-inflammatory & anti-fungal properties and no side effects. You just put a few drops on your fingertips, rub them together & run your fingertips all over the itching scalp areas. It's ok to put more drops of Emu oil if you need more, it's non-greasy & the scalp absorbs it easily. I have switched from prednisone to Emu oil for continued maintenance to control the inflammation & itching. So far, so good, it's working well.
Greetings. Coming to you from Europe or more precisely BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA. I am 28 and for 7 years I have alopecia. For many years I have had a diagnosis of androgenetic ALOPECIA, but before only 7 days for the first time I was doing a biopsy of the parietal Most attacks findings showed that I have ALOPECIA CICATRICIALIS (LICHEN PLANOPILARIS) ... Doctor told me that there is no chance that the hair begin to grow again in places where she fell because of roots in these places is dead at least that finding showed but they will try to halt further decline.. He prescribed me an antibiotic that will use the next 6 months and is called DOXYCYCLINE 100mg 2x a day ... Please do you agree with his opinion, and is there any possibility that you can help me is there any drug or anything that you can recomend to me? Than you. Kind Regards Dragana
