Alopecia Areata

There are a number of different types of alopecia areata — an autoimmune skin disease, which causes hair loss on the scalp, face and sometimes on other areas of the body. With each of these types — which range from mild to much more severe — you or someone you care about may experience slightly different symptoms and the course of treatment for each may be different.

Living with Alopecia Areata 

Because hair loss and regrowth from alopecia areata is unpredictable and sometimes cyclical (comes back again and again), having the condition can be frustrating and emotionally challenging for many people.

Even though reactions to the disease are different for everyone, there are some common emotions that many people who have alopecia areata and the people around them say that they experience. These include feelings of grief, anxiety, loss, fear, embarrassment, loneliness and anger.

What you need to know about alopecia areata during childhood

People of all ages, races and both sexes can develop alopecia areata, but it often first appears during childhood. Children who have alopecia areata go through different stages of awareness and acceptance of their disease as they grow and change.

Children five years old and younger appear to experience little emotional impact as a result of their condition. However, as they get older, it may become more difficult for them to accept their alopecia areata and issues with self confidence may begin to affect their experiences at school and with friends.
