Lichen Planopilaris...newly diagnosed

I was diagnosed last week and was prescribed Clobetasol Propion. It is only mildly helping and my skin is still burning and hair falling out. As it is only 6 days, I'm hoping for improvement. The scalp is still extremely sore where there are 3 stitches from the biopsy which the surgeon said would not fall out for another 6 weeks. – j

It has now been 2 weeks of treatment with Clobetasol Propionate. My scalp soreness is improving but the itchiness is still there. I read that one of the side effects IS itching so I cut back the morning treatment. My hairdresser was very kind to come to my home and gave me a short haircut which helps in seeing new spots if any. The nape of my neck area was also very sensitive but is improving. So far, so good. Just wondering if anyone with Lichen Planopilaris has tried Rogaine with success. I have read that it does not work, but I’m an optimist. – tsafer
