AN OVERVIEW OF ALOPECIA AREATA

Alopecia is a word meaning hair loss and alopecia areata is a medical condition in which hair is lost in round patches. The hair loss can be on the scalp or any other body part.

This condition can cause other types of hair loss. They are:

  • Alopecia areata (loss of hair in patches)
  • Alopecia totalis (total scalp hair loss)
  • Alopecia Universalis (total hair loss on the body)

Hair loss is not a common condition as it occurs in about 5% of people.

Some people may grow hairs again on the parts which the hairs were first lost, but these hairs tend to fall out again. In some cases, hair loss may last for years.

This condition is not contagious, and it is not a nerve-related issue. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles, thereby causing the hairs to fall off.

OUR PATIENTS REVIEW

Quotes

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

Quotes

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
