What if hair loss is not male or female pattern hair loss?

Alopecia areata is a common form of hair loss. It is believed to be an autoimmune disease. This is similar to rheumatoid arthritis but attacking the hair follicles. This usually appears as circular bald patches.  There may be several of these at the same time. Hair loss can be extensive and may be persistent. It can affect men, women and children.

The inflammation in this condition is deep in the hair follicles.  There will be no redness or soreness at scalp level.

This condition may completely disappear on its own. Especially if only one or two patches are present. Other people find that they have recurring episodes of hair loss and hair growth.

It is not known exactly what causes this.  It may be genetically determined. It seems that allergies, hormones, viruses and toxins may all play a part.

What treatments are available for this type of hair loss?

It is difficult to know what is the best hair loss treatment in this particular disease.

Corticosteroids are often used to treat it. These are creams applied directly to the scalp. For more severe cases dermatologists may recommend corticosteroid injections into the bald patches. This can be very effective.  But it must be closely monitored for side effects. These may include skin thinning.

In still more severe cases corticosteroid tablets can be used.  These   affecting the whole body.  The side effects can be more severe still. They can  lead to thinning of bones. Short courses of treatment can be very effective. This will minimise the side effects.

Trials are underway using products which irritate the scalp.  They cause what seems like an allergic reaction. It sounds strange but this can sometimes stimulate the hair follicles and cause them to grow hair again.

More information can be found on the website of  the American Hair Loss Association .
