Alopecia Areata is a common disease that causes hair loss in patches, in the scalp and other parts of the body. It affects men and women of all ages, although most young people. Here the affected hair follicles diminish significantly its production of hair, they become very small and produce a hair that is rarely seen. These follicles are in a state of numbness and at any time can return to work after receiving an appropriate signal.
Some people develop only a few bare boards that are replanted within one year. Sometimes you lose all the hair of the head (alopecia totalis). In other people, you lose all body hair (alopecia universalis). It is believed that alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease in which the body mistakenly produces antibodies against hair follicle (Autoalergia). Nervous factors may precipitate the disease or prevent its improvement. The treatment involves applying minoxidil, cyclosporine, steroid creams or anthralin or injected cortisone into the bare. In selected cases UV treatment or application of dibenciprona on injuries in order to produce an allergic eczema that stimulates the follicles to sleep.
