Are you losing your hair in patches? You may have Alopecia Areata
Alopecia (hair loss) areata is a disease that causes hair to fall out in round patches. The disease affects the hair follicles. Some people with the disease may get a few patches and others may lose more hair. Rarely, do people lose all of their hair. The hair often grows back but it may fall out again.
People can get Alopecia Areata at any age and it usually starts in childhood. Although the cause is not known, scientists believe that genes may play a role and most people that have the disease have a family member that has had it.
