What is alopecia?
Alopecia Areata is a condition that causes hair to fall out in patches. These patches may be small and unnoticeable at first, but if they connect, this becomes more noticeable. You may also suffer total hair loss. Alopecia can be a sudden onset of hair loss or can develop slowly over time.
Hair loss can occur on other parts of the face, such as eyelashes, eyebrows or beard, as well as other places on the body. Alopecia can affect men, women, and children, and can occur multiple times, with the hair growing back in between.
