Alopecia is the medical term for bald. Areata means patchy.
This patchy baldness can develop anywhere on the body, including the scalp, beard area, eyebrows, eyelashes, armpits, inside your nose, or ears.
It’s a common disorder that can be treated, hence restoring the lost hair is possible.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition in which your immunity destroys your hair roots.
This disorder is neither affected by your lifestyle or food-consuming habit.
Furthermore, the autoimmunity can get associated with other conditions like hypothyroidism diabetes, arthritis, or any other autoimmune disorder.
The main symptom of alopecia areata is hair loss, which usually appears as one or more round patches on the scalp.
The hair loss can also occur on other parts of the body, such as the beard, eyebrows, and eyelashes.
Other symptoms may include itching or tingling in the affected area, and the development of small, round bumps on the scalp.
These patches can’t develop due to fungal infection, insect bite, or spider venom.
However, patches due to fungal infection may look similar, so it's important to get diagnosed properly by a qualifed M.D. dermatologist in Rajkot.
Diagnosis of alopecia areata is done by your dermatologist, which is mostly clinical and by trichoscopy.
Other tests are done to rule out other associated autoimmune diseases.
Generally, alopecia areata is considered to be very good in responding to the medicines consumed for eliminating it.
But in some cases, as it is an autoimmune disorder, it might end up in recurring where you must visit your dermatologist for getting the therapy required.
Goals of treatment:
1. To stop the progression of hair loss or development of new patches.
2. Regrow hair in existing bald patches.
Treatment options for alopecia areata include:
Topical corticosteroids: These are applied directly to the scalp and can help to reduce inflammation and promote hair growth.
Oral corticosteroids: These are taken by mouth and can be used in more severe cases of alopecia areata.
Topical minoxidil: This medication is applied to the scalp and can help to promote hair growth.
Immunotherapy: This treatment involves applying a substance to the scalp that can trigger an allergic reaction. The goal is to stimulate the immune system to attack the cells that are causing the hair loss.
Light therapy: This treatment uses light to stimulate hair growth.
Wigs, hairpieces, and hair systems: These can be used to cover the affected areas and provide a more natural appearance.
Surgical hair restoration: This can be an option in more severe cases of hair loss.
It's important to note that not all of these treatment options may be suitable for every individual.
Your doctor or a dermatologist can help you determine the best course of treatment for your specific case.
