What is Alopecia Areata and how is it caused?

Alopecia areata is another name for spot baldness. It is a condition in which hair is lost from different parts of one’s body. This hair loss happens in small patches and is quite noticeable. In a prolonged period of time, the patches may even connect together and result in larger, more prominent patches.

The condition is a direct result of an attack on hair follicles by the immune system. This is what causes the hair loss in patches. However, the extent of hair loss varies from one person to another.

Alopecia areata is a common condition among Indians, and it affects one’s self-esteem and confidence in a negative manner.

Let us now look at its different types, symptoms and causes, and discover how homeopathy provides the ultimate remedies for battling alopecia areata.
