Alopecia Areata Treatment

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder,  during which hair starts to fall out in patches. 

In many people it may start in childhood. A family history plays a huge role in development of alopecia areata. This condition is classified as an autoimmune disorder, so the immune system mistakenly tries to attack hair follicles. 

Mostly it affects the scalp, but sometimes facial hair can also be involved in the process. The prevalence is equal in men and women.  Alopecia areata is not contagious. Currently, there is no cure for alopecia areata, but there are certain treatments, that can help regrow the hair.
