What is Alopecia?

What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is a condition that causes people to lose hair from a single area or from multiple areas of their head, face or body. It can also cause eyebrows to thin out and disappear.

The term “alopecia” comes from the Greek word “alopex” which means “fox” and refers to the loss of hair in patches that resemble the fur on a fox.

Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss. It can affect people of any age, gender, or race. The condition is caused by the immune system attacking the hair follicles and preventing them from producing hair. There are three types of alopecia: Alopecia areata (patchy baldness), alopecia totalis (baldness on the scalp), and alopecia universalis (baldness all over).

Alopecia can be caused by many factors, including genetics and stress. It is more common in women than men. Stressful events can cause alopecia as well as physical trauma such as burns or accidents.

The most common type of alopecia is Alopecia Areata which affects about 2% of the population. This type usually starts with one or more round patches on the scalp, followed by complete or partial hair loss throughout the body.

There is no cure for alopecia at this time. However, there are many treatment options available that can help people with alopecia manage their symptoms and live a normal life.
