What is Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia Areata is triggered by an inflammatory condition within the auto-immune system. This form of hair loss can appear at any age in both men and women alike. It is recognised as being unpredictable, with bald patches occurring over the scalp and a subsequent regrowth of the hair. This process can keep happening continuously.
What Causes It?
It is an auto-immune inflammatory condition where the blood`s white cells within the body attack the hair follicles. This then instigates the hair to drop out. It can occur, and most frequently happens on the scalp, but it can also affect other areas on the body where there is likely to be hair growth.
What Are The Symptoms?
Patchy hair loss which can be observed on the scalp, rather than diffuse or patterned hair loss. There appears to be no evidence of scarring, inflammation or redness. Additionally, the hair follicles can still be visibly present within the patches.
How do you cure Alopecia Areata?
Dermatologist Manchester are able to offer a variety of treatment options to address this condition. They can include topical steroids applied directly onto the scalp, further options could be Steroid injections administered into the bald patches, DCP Sensitization Treatment or Oral Immuno-Suppressant Treatment.
Positive results are also being seen with platelet-rich plasma injections, although it must be mentioned this is still in the early days of trials and is largely experimental. Some patients have also experienced regrowth without the need for any treatment at all.
