Signs of Alopecia
Hair loss can manifest itself in various ways, depending on the cause. It might occur abruptly or gradually, affecting the scalp or even the entire body.
Sudden Hair Loosening
Hair may have the tendency to loosen as a result of physical or mental trauma. A few strands of hair may fall out when combing or washing your hair, or even after light tugging. This type of hair loss is associated with hair thinning, which is usually only transitory.
Full-Body Hair Loss
Hair loss can occur as a result of some medical treatments, such as chemotherapy for cancer. Hair normally regrows on its own.
For men, this includes the hair on their brows, eyelids, arms, legs, underarms, pubic, chest, and back. Alopecia patients may experience burning or itching in regions where they once had hair.
Gradual Thinning on Top of the Head
Many aging people may experience this common symptom.
Hair begins to stop growing near the hairline on the forehead in men. On the other hand, the majority of cases in women involves some parts of the scalp.
Circular or Patchy Bald Spots
Some people lose hair in circular or spotty bald areas like the beard, brows, and scalp area.
This exposes the smooth, peach-colored parts of the scalp, making it uncomfortable. Alopecia areata begins with one to two bald patches the size of a coin. After that, it frequently comes to a stop. Hair can grow back in some cases, but with no clear guarantee.
