About Bald Patches

  • What is alopecia areata?

    Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune skin disease, causing patchy hair loss on the scalp, face and sometimes on other areas of the body.The typical pattern is for one or more bald patches which tend to be round in shape and about the size of a large coin.The area of bald skin looks smooth and normal. In most cases, there are no other scalp symptoms. Occasionally, there is mild itching, tingling, tenderness or a burning sensation in the affected area. Some people with alopecia areata also have abnormalities in the surface of their fingernails, such as tiny pits,dents or an abnormal area of redness.

  • Is regrowth possible?

    The hair loss tends to be unpredictable. Hair may regrow without treatment. This happens more often when someone has a few bald patches. If your hair fails to grow back on its own, treatment may help stimulate regrowth.
