    TLDR Latanoprost works better for hair growth, and combining it with betamethasone valerate is most effective.
    A study conducted 5 years ago compared the effectiveness of topical latanoprost, minoxidil, and betamethasone valerate in treating alopecia areata. The study found that topical latanoprost was more effective than the other two treatments in promoting hair growth and reducing the severity of the condition. The combination of latanoprost and betamethasone valerate was found to be the most effective treatment option. However, further studies are needed to confirm these findings.
