Alopecia Areata

Alopecia is the loss of hair.

Alopecia is a hair condition in which hair is lost from a few or all territories of the body, more often from the scalp. Since it causes bare spots on the scalp, particularly in the main stages, it is sometimes called spot baldness.

There are two fundamental types of Alopecia

Alopecia Areata happens when the body’s immune system assaults hair follicles and makes hair drop out.

Androgenic alopecia then again is an acquired type of male pattern baldness. In androgenic alopecia, hair on the take diminishes and tumbles off. In men, this is called male pattern baldness, in ladies, it is called female pattern baldness.

In 1% or 2% of cases, the condition can spread to the whole scalp (Alopecia Totalis) or the whole epidermis(Alopecia Universalis).
