The UCSF Hair Center has been using a cicatricial alopecia standardized flow chart to document the course and response to treatment at every visit in patients with cicatricial alopecia 16. The standardized flow chart records symptoms pruritus, pain, burning and signs erythema, perifollicular erythema, perifollicular scale, a measure of activity the anagen pull test, and spreading of the condition.
