What is Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia Areata is a common autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. It usually begins with one or more small, round, smooth patches on the scalp and can progress to total scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis). This common skin disease is very unpredictable and cyclical. Hair can grow back in or fall out again at any time, and the disease course is different for each person.
