The Problem of Alopecia areata is a skin disorder. It causes hair loss which is mostly on the scalp and it is usually in small patches. The patches affect only a limited area. In some cases, the hair grows back in one year, but in some cases, the problem lasts longer. It causes a severe problem of total baldness or total loss of body hair.

The main cause is an autoimmune reaction which means the immune system attack the bodys own cell incorrectly. The problem is common after the age of 30 and around 40% people less than the age of 30 will be diagnosed with this problem. If you are facing the problem then you should get a revision hair transplant in Visakhapatnam.


The problem is common in people who have vitiligo (when patches of skin start losing their color), thyroid disease, asthma, and down syndrome.

Before the age of 20, the problem is experienced for the first time. But usually, the hair grows back. If you face the problem again then it is also very normal.


  • Mild itching
  • Tingling
  • Abnormalities in fingernails
  • Burning sensation
  • Tenderness


There is no such permanent treatment to solve this problem. Some of the options which might help such as taking the medication of topical minoxidil. Anthralin can be applied to the scalp which helps in hair regrowth. Cortisonecream is applied on the patches which decrease the reaction.


The Alopecia areata cannot be prevented. Even after the treatment, it can happen again.
