Possibly: Diprolene (augmented betamethasone dip) is the brand name for a steroid called betamethasone. Some patients with inflammatory alopecia may respond to topical steroids. However, that is far too general a statement to hang your hat on. Having a dermatologist involved in your eval and care would be a good thing to consider.
