I have been diagnosed with Folliculitis Decalvans (FD) which according to medical journalsis a rare type of follicularitis which not only has the acne like sores on the scalp but ends in alopecia. The first time I had this diagnosis was about 6 years ago and the dermatologist put me on a cycle of Accutane. This method worked well and my scalp returned to normal, although, up until last year I have experienced break outs. The doctor who initially diagnosed the FD had retired by then and other doctors were shying away from Accutane due to its side effects. In Feb 2016, I had a Prolia shot and this resulted in terrible side effects, the worst being a return of FD with a vengeance. The doctors (there were 3) tried several methods such as medicated lotions and antibiotics. None worked. Another dermatologist diagnosed it as FD and I am now taking Soriatane. Of course there are side effects such as very dry mouth and a bit of nausea. I have only been on this drug for about 3 weeks and if anything my scalp is worse than ever. I am wondering how long this drug takes to show some results.
