Alopecia Areata

What is Alopecia Areata?

An inappropriate inflammatory reaction is behind alopecia areata. A person’s own immune system attacks the roots of hair follicles. Symptoms include patchy shedding of hair, which sometimes develops quite suddenly. About 70% of patients recover their hair within two years, whether or not they receive treatment.
