Does fluocinodine promote hair growth in alopecia sufferers? Will hair stop growing/shed after use has stopped?

In brief: Alopecia, steroids

Topical steroids such as this will help in certain cases of alopecia, such as alopecia areata or if inflammation of the scalp is present.
In many cases however they will not induce regrowth. The cause of the alopecia must be established first by a dermatologist, as then any treatment advise can be specific.
