Alopecia areata is a hair loss problem, in which patients are losing the hair in patches. Most commonly, this hair problem causes patchy hair loss occurring on the scalp, although in more extreme cases, the problem might also occur on the skin all over the body, instead of merely the scalp. In patients’ scalp, alopecia areata triggers thinning hair, which may lead to hair loss, which happens suddenly and fast. In extreme cases of alopecia areata, patients experience complete hair loss and have very little chance of the hair for re-growing.
Curing alopecia areata
Alopecia areata is claimed by numerous research to be incurable. This means, people experiencing this patchy hair loss problem will keep experiencing the problem in some stages of their lives. Thus, it is almost impossible to get rid of alopecia areata completely once a person gets the first breakout. Even though in many cases patient experience their hair growing back after some months or years, the hair loss problem will likely to reoccur anytime in the future.
It is also very hard to get rid of alopecia areata using medical treatments and medications. Hence, this hair loss problem is considered as an auto-immune disease. Thus, people suffering from patchy hair loss might experience different symptoms and degree of severity from one to another. Although alopecia aerate is not avoidable for people who are susceptible to it, it is possible to minimize the resulted effects through some natural treatments rather than medical treatments and medications.
