Alopecia areata is a disorder that causes unpredictable hair loss. Every year, thousands of people are being affected alopecia, and sadly the number keeps growing.
Here are some of the key points about alopecia areata:
Alopecia areata, develops suddenly over the course of few days.
Its not necessarily caused by stress, as there is no scientific evidence to prove this.
Some people with alopecia areata, who lose hair only in patches do recover their hair in time without any medical treatment.
There is no real cure for this disorder.
The most prominent or obvious symptom is hair loss in patches. The hair begins to fall out from the scalp in coin-sized patches. The beard or eyelashes can also get affected.
Hair loss in this case can be sudden, or over a period of few days or weeks. There could be itching or burning too in the area before the hair loss happens. Since the hair follicles are not destroyed, hair can regrow if the inflammation of the follicles subsides. However, most individuals who develop alopecia areata, realize that the condition becomes more a continuous cycle of hair loss and regrowth.
There really is no cure for alopecia areata, though some forms of medical treatment can help hair regrow. And for those, who go through medical treatment and see no improvement, we suggest using human hair wigs to hide the baldness. These hair wigs are made from real human hair, and look just like one’s own hair, unlike hair wigs that looked fake and unreal earlier when technology wasn’t as advanced as it is now.
