Alopecia Areata


Alopecia Areata is the medical term for patchy hair loss. Althoughthe hair loss is usually from the scalp, this is not always the case and hair may be lost from other areas of the body too. Occasionally the hair loss may be spread evenly across the scalp. In these cases the condition is known has Diffuse Alopecia Areata.

Alopecia Areata is a common cause of hair loss in children, and those who do experience Alopecia Areata hair loss before puberty may become predisposed to chronic recurrence of the condition.

In some cases, sufferers of Alopecia Areata are lucky and the hair loss will stop, and the hair will grow back after a year or so. However in some cases there may be no regrowth, or even progression of the condition to Alopecia Totalis or Universalis.

Aside from the actual loss of hair, there are very few physical symptopms associated with Alopecia Areata, and most of the damage will be psychological. People experiencing Alopecia Areata may experience a loss of self-esteem and a low self-image due to their conception of how others will perceive them.
