What is Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, where the immune system attacks the hair follicles, which causes hair loss. There are 3 types of alopecia. Localized alopecia areata is the most common type and results in round patches of hair loss. Alopecia totalis is the loss of all hair on the scalp. Alopecia universalis is the loss of all hair on the scalp and body. The hair loss sometimes lasts for many years at a time. Hair may partially grow back without intervention, but may fall out again. Alopecia areata can occur at any age, and is triggered by a person’s genetic makeup along with other factors.
