Alopecia Areata is often identified by spotty bald patches and is a hair loss condition that affects millions of men and women daily. Alopecia is the medical term used for hair loss. Alopecia Areata is a particular form of hair loss that all areas of a body or just random locations but is most noticeable in the scalp area. Alopecia is believed to be a form of auto-immune disease that causes bald spots. It happens most often in the early stages of hair loss. In some cases, the disease can spread to the entire scalp which is known as Alopecia Totalis or even the entire body, called Alopecia Universalis. These different types of alopecia do not discriminate from men, women or children.
Alopecia Areata at the moment does not have a cure but there are a variety of treatments that can work temporarily. One popular treatment requires an injection of corticosteroids into the affected balding areas. Injections are performed by a doctor or licensed medical practitioner. This is only temporary help to the affected area of the scalp around the injection site, but hair loss can still occur in untreated areas.
