What is alopecia areata

Alopecia Areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicle, Which is where hair growth begins. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent. Experts do not know why the immune system attacks the follicles. Alopecia areata is most common in people younger than 20, but children and adults of any age may be affected. Women and men are affected equally.

what causes alopecia areata

It can be caused by the body’s immune system attacking its own hair follicles in response to an infection, injury, or another type of stress. Alopecia Areata is not contagious and doesn’t affect one’s health in any way. The most important thing for people with alopecia areata is to continue their daily life as normal and seek support from loved ones and friends who will help them through this difficult time.
