What is Alopecia?

Alopecia Ireland

Alopecia is a disorder triggered by a persons autoimmune system that causes either a woman or a mans hair to come out. 

The hair comes out in patches and clumps in different sizes anywhere around the head. Depending on which type of Alopecia a person has will depend the the severity of the hair loss. Some people lose their hair only in a few spots. On occasion the hair grows back but can falls out again.

There are a range of different types of this condition which include,

- Alopecia areata universalis essentially you loss hair over entire body which includes eyebrows.

- Alopecia areata totalis generally means hair loss just on your crown and head area


- Diffuse alopecia areata is less extreme as most people experience thinning hair other than bald patches.

- Ophiasis alopecia areata is hair loss in a circular band shape on the sides and back of the head.
