Alopecia Areata, reoccurring spotty bald patches, is a hair loss condition that affects millions of men and women who struggle with it on a daily basis. Alopecia is simply a medical term for hair loss. Alopecia Areata is a form of hair loss that can affect some or all areas of the body, usually most noticeable in the scalp. Believed to be a form of auto-immune disease, Alopecia Areata causes bald spots on the scalp, especially in the early stages, it is sometimes called “spot baldness.” In 1% to 5% of cases, the condition can spread to the entire scalp (Alopecia Totalis) or to the entire body (Alopecia Universalis). The different types of Alopecia do not discriminate and can affect men, women, and children.
At the moment there is no cure for Alopecia Areata but there are treatments that can work on a temporary basis. One popular treatment method requires injection of Corticosteroids* into the affected balding areas. Injections are performed by a doctor or licensed medical practitioner. This may temporarily help the area of the scalp near the injection site but hair loss may still occur in other untreated areas. For Alopecia Areata suffers, treatments like injections can be too uncomfortable or too expensive to continue treatments in the long term. Compounding matters, due to its very nature, spotty patches of hair loss can occur and reoccur in different areas of the scalp.
