Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Is that an xtra $50.00 in addition to the $40.00.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Is that an xtra $50.00 in addition to the $40.00. I cannot go for any extra cost as I live on my social security and as it is $90.00 total is out of the question. So just refund my $40.00 thank you.
Sincerely,Judy

No extra.

I did not suggest the offer. That was site automation, sorry.

Injections in the scalp are the correct treatment.

But you have two different disorders.

The rash has nothing to do with alopecia arreta.

Make sense?
