Hair loss is one of the main problems that society is facing nowadays and constant experiments have been conducted in search for the cure. Alopecia areata is one of these hair loss conditions.
Alopcia areata is the condition where hair is lost from some or all parts of the body. However, it isn’t just your usual hair loss problem. Alopecia areata is an unpredictable disease caused by some abnormalities in our immune system often referred to as the autoimmune disease. This disease causes our immune system to attack the body instead of helping it and hair follicles are usually the targets. When the hair follicles are damaged, so are the chances of hair growth in that area. Hair will eventually start to fall out until there’s nothing left on the scalp.
No one really knows what causes Alopecia Areata but it has been advised that this may be hereditary. Your chances of getting Alopecia Areata is increased if you have parents or relatives who have or have had this problem too.
Alopecia areata starts out with small, bald patches on the scalp resembling any shape but most of which are round. It usually happens in the scalp but can also happen to other hair-bearing parts of the body. Another symptom to take note is the shape of new hair. Alopecia areata causes hair to fall out because the hair follicles are no longer strong enough to hold on to them.
