Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is a condition that causes patches of baldness. It is believed to be caused by a problem with the immune system (the body’s natural defence against infection and illness) or a possible genetic condition. In many cases the hair grows back after about a year.

Scarring Alopecia

Scarring alopecia, also known as cicatricial alopecia, is hair loss that can occur from complications of another condition. In this type of alopecia, the hair follicle is destroyed, so the hair will not grow back.
Conditions that can cause scarring alopecia include lichen planus (an itchy rash affecting many areas of the body) and discoid lupus (a mild form of lupus affecting the skin, causing scaly marks and hair loss).

Other types of alopecia include:

  • Traction alopecia - caused by repeatedly pulling on the hair when styling,
  • Male pattern baldness & female pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia,
  • Diffuse patterned alopecia - hair loss that is generally distributed across the effected area,
  • Telogen effluvium is one of the most common causes of alopecia - associated with excessive shedding of hair and can be caused by drugs, trauma, and emotional and physiological stress,
  • Trichotillomania - the compulsion to pull your hair out (this often includes eyelashes & eyebrow hairs).
