About alopecia areata

27-01-10-image-1-308424894

An autoimmune disease, alopecia causes the immune system to mistakenly attack hair follicles, leading to hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere.

In many cases, the disease does not extend beyond a few bare patches, but in some people, hair loss is more extensive.

Scientists do not know exactly why the hair follicles are affected, but they suspect that a combination of genes may predispose some people to the disease.

Alopecia areata affects an estimated 4 million Americans of both sexes, all ages and ethnic backgrounds. It often begins in childhood.

Alopecia is not a life-threatening disease. It does not cause any physical pain, and people with the condition are generally healthy otherwise.
