Alopecia in men and women

Alopecia in men and women

Alopecia is the medical term for "bald" or "hair loss." It refers to all kinds of hair loss, including male-pattern baldness (also experienced by women).

It is a common autoimmune disease that affects about 6.8 million people in the U.S., and nearly one-third of women experience it at some point in their lives.

The cause of alopecia

Alopecia develops when your immune system attacks healthy hair follicles and causes the hair to fall out. However, scientists are unsure what causes this to happen.

Most people develop alopecia as children or teenagers, and half experience hair regrowth in twelve months. After that, the hair may fall out again or fall out and grow back in cycles.

There is no cure for alopecia

There is no cure for alopecia

There are many treatment options, but not a universal cure.

Many people experiment with products they see in the store and on the internet. However, different types of hair loss require different treatments.

Board-certified specialists can perform a biopsy to diagnose the condition and help determine the best treatment.

Some people can use topical or injected steroids, Janus kinase inhibitors, platelet-rich plasma, anti-inflammatory medications, Rogaine, or hair transplants. But, treatment doesn’t guarantee that a person’s hair will regrow.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
