So, how do you know if you have Alopecia?
One of the commonest causes of alopecia areata is an autoimmune reaction. This means the body’s immune system incorrectly attacks the body’s own cells. In the case of alopecia areata, the cells attack the hair follicles in certain targeted areas.
Some of the symptoms of Alopecia Areata include:
- Patchy bald spots on the scalp
- Patchy hair loss from hair areas on the body like eyebrows, beard, moustache or extremities.
- Whole-body hair loss
- Scarring of the skin with hair loss
What causes Alopecia?
The exact cause of Alopecia Areata may not be fully understood, but some common causes are:
Infectious Alopecia Areata –
Amongst various scalp infections, the one that causes hair loss in patches is Ringworm. Ringworm is a fungal infection that can occur anywhere on the body.
Auto-immune Alopecia Areata –
In the auto-immune variety, the body’s immune system attacks and destroys its own hair follicles resulting in patchy hair loss. In the auto-immune variety, the trigger could be an infection which can be fungal, viral or bacterial. The infection may not be severe but it makes the body produce certain antibodies.
