Rise Above Alopecia and the Pandemic Together

Press release. This is a sponsored post.

The impact of a particular skin diseases such as gradual loss of hair on the lives of those affected tends to be understated or set aside as merely a cosmetic problem. Alopecia areata is called an ‘autoimmune disease’,  manifested as the loss of hair or baldness in well-circumscribed small patches of normal-appearing skin, most commonly set off on the scalp. The body’s immune system usually fights off germs but accidentally attacks itself. Alopecia areata is said to trigger occurring illness in a form of viral infection, or by taking medications for other medical conditions. Likewise, other alopecia cases  link the onset from stressful life event, some associate it to genetic disease. More often than not, the main cause is not clear at all.

If you have alopecia areata you also have a slightly higher-than-average chance of developing other autoimmune diseases such as thyroid disorders, pernicious anaemia and vitiligo. Your doctor may wish to check for these if there are any signs of them along with the hair loss. Alopecia areata can occur at any age but about half of cases come on in childhood and 80% of cases come on before the age of 40 years. Men and women are equally affected. The condition tends to be milder if it comes on at an older age. “( C. Tidy, 2020)

What are the treatment options for alopecia areata?

Diagnosing alopecia areata is usually easy, however treating it is not. Curative therapy does not exist, and there is a paucity of well-conducted, long-term, controlled trials evaluating therapy for alopecia areata and its effect on the quality of life. Given the often unsatisfactory results of current therapy, some clinicians rely on the high rate of spontaneous remission and will recommend a wig if remission does not occur. Still, limited but often helpful therapeutic options do exist for both acute and chronic, relapsing alopecia areata. (New England Journal of Medicine, 2012).
