Are you sure you heard him right? What you experienced sounds like confusing signals and you should go back to him to get clarification. To my knowledge, he does not use this dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB) treatment for body hair alopecia areata. I provided photos of a patient that I met with who had a great result
Alopecia areata will often disappear months after it first appears. There is always a risk of it reappearing at any time, but considering how many years it is since its last appearance, it seems unlikely. Alopecia areata (AA) is often regional so if you are genetically balding (more patterned loss) and the diseased area is
It has to be active and the biopsy must be done at the margin between the hairy area and the bald area (just on the edge). If it’s not active you can’t tell. Otherwise, it just looks like scarring alopecia.
From the article: Read the rest (and see the video) — Men, Women Battle Mysterious Hair Loss The article (ABC 7 in Washington DC) does not provide any insight into alopecia areata since so little is known, but it does bring some attention to the topic. The video is also a good chance to see
Hair during recovery from alopecia areata may just return to its original texture. Then again, it may not. Diffuse alopecia areata is not fully understood as a disease process. There might be better information (including support forums) at the National Alopecia Areata Foundation site.

Diffuse alopecia areata can look very similar to telogen effluvium. The only way to tell these two diagnosis apart is by performing a series of biopsies of the scalp. Alopecia areata can be diagnosed histologically.
At one and a half months, there is not much you can say about the resolution of your alopecia areata. If you see hair growing inside the bald areas, that is good news (even if it is white hair). Maybe the process will burn out on its own. Good luck.
You’re right in that I cannot make a personal diagnosis over the Internet. You report Diffuse Patterned Alopecia which does not define what you have. I am assuming that you do not have the diffuse form of alopecia areata which is an autoimmune disease (very rare in young men) and if you had it, it
This is often the way alopecia areata presents, but you could have other causes such a ringworm, as well. Get to see a dermatologist and have it evaluated. There are no over the counter medications to treat what you do not know you really have.
