Alopecia is a condition in which hair is damaged or lost from some or all areas of the body, usually from scalp. Because it causes bald spots on the scalp, especially in the first stages, it is sometimes called spot baldness
There are two main types of Alopecia
Alopecia Areata occurs when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out.
Androgenic alopecia on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. In androgenic alopecia, hair on the head thins and falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss, in women; it is called female diffuse hair loss.
In 1% or 2% of cases, the condition can spread to the entire scalp (Alopecia Totalis) or the entire epidermis (Alopecia Universalis).
Symptoms of Alopecia
the most common symptom of alopecia areata is hair loss, in which the hair usually falls of a quarter. Although many people with alopecia areata get only a few bare patches, some people may lose more hair. In rare case, the condition can progress to complete loss of hair on the head ( alopecia areata totalis )or complete loss of hair on the head , face and body ( alopecia areata universalis) .
In cases of alopecia areata universalis, loss of eyelashes and eyebrows, as well as hair in the nose and ears, can make the person more vulnerable to dust, germs and foreign particles entering the eyes, nose and ears.
