Alopecia areata comes in a variety of types, including the following:
- Alopecia Totalis
- Alopecia Universalis
- Diffuse Alopecia Areata
- Ophiasis Alopecia
While Alopecia areata is most commonly associated with hair loss on the skull, it may affect any region of your body. Hair loss may affect the brows, eyelashes, or mustache in men. Nevertheless, there are no indications of irritation, scarring, or redness wherever the hair loss occurs.
Alopecia areata may also manifest itself in the following ways:
- White and gray hairs typically persist when hair loss has occurred.
- When hair has fallen out, it begins to regenerate on its own.
- Hair starts to develop in a bald area and falls out another.
- Hair loss is more common in the winter months.
If you notice symptoms of Alopecia areata, consult your doctor.
