Oral Prednisone

Prednisone is a corticosteroid used to treat a myriad of conditions involving inflammation and autoimmune responses, including asthma, allergic reactions, ulcerative colitis, and arthritis. Its efficacy in alopecia areata derives from its potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects, which can temporarily halt the immune-mediated attack on hair follicles. Due to potential side effects, its use for hair loss is typically reserved for rapidly progressing or severe cases of alopecia areata in both men and women and is usually considered as a short-term intervention.
