The menace of hair loss - Alopecia Areata


What is Alopecia Areata?

It is the occurrence of hair loss in small patchy areas. There are discrete patches from which hair starts shedding in this condition. It is thought to be an autoimmune disorder. Autoimmune is a condition in which the body works contrarily to what it is supposed to work.


How does it classify as an autoimmune disorder?

The body starts to think that the hair follicles are not a part of the scalp resulting in the shedding of this hair. It starts to ensure that the concerned hair follicles are drawn out from the scalp resulting in patchiness in various areas.


Do therapies work on Alopecia Areata?

For most patients, hair therapies do wonders. But for one to two percent of patients, alopecia areata is so extreme that it is not treatable. In this condition, Alopecia Areata turns into Alopecia Totalis which means hair loss from the complete scalp. In a worse situation, this turns into Alopecia Universalis; which means that the hair does not only disappear from the scalp but also from eyebrow, mustache, and beard. Perceived to be usually chronic and difficult to treat, 99% of patients of these alopecia patches are limited and they respond well to the treatment.





When is a good time to treat Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia Areata can be removed when the patches are small. At HairMd, we can treat them with the help of oral steroids or topical steroids. The treatment is based on individual cases completely. If we don't deem steroids to be fit in some patients, then we can use intralesional steroids in such cases.


HairMD treats a lot of patients for Alopecia Areata on a regular basis and treats each case individually. Do not panic if you develop this condition as it is easily treatable in the nascent stage. Ensure to get checked when you start to show symptoms of hair loss so that you do not have to suffer later. It is better to be safe than sorry.
