Alopecia Areata is a condition that occurs without warning. It can happen overnight. It is characterized by the appearance of bald patches on the head. It is believed to be the result of an immune system imbalance which causes it to attack hair follicles which in turn, causes hair loss or prevents hair growth in the affected area. Alopecia Areata cases are handled by seeing a dermatologist. Unfortunately researchers have not come up with a standard procedure to diagnose Alopecia Areata cases yet. So dermatologists perform a process of elimination in determining the cause of hair loss in a patient. However, the distinctive quality of Alopecia Areata makes it easier to identify by a simple visual examination of the bald patch. These bald lesions appear as smooth surfaces that do not show any signs of broken hairs or even inflammation.
There are two main forms of this condition which vary by the extent of hair loss and require different types of alopecia treatment. The mild form is where less than 50% of the hair is lost from thinning patches on the scalp and the more severe condition where more than 50% up to 100% of the hair is lost. The mild form of the disease is easier to treat and the most common form of treatment is to have monthly cortisone injections, injected directly into the bare scalp. These are usually quite painless giving a slight tingling sensation and have very few side effects such as minor skin depressions. This alopecia areata treatment is usually complimented with higher strength 5% topical minoxidil solution applied twice daily. Cortisone cream is sometimes used in combination with minoxidil for improved response and applied 30 minutes after the minoxidil application.
Experts believe there is a genetic component to Alopecia Areata, because one out of five people who have the symptoms, have a family-member also affected by hair loss. Current research has found that if onset begins after age 30 you are less likely to have an affected family member. There are numerous treatments for alopecia areata. It is up to you to find the right one with the help of a health professional. Essential oils of cedarwood, lavender, rosemary and thyme can promote hair growth. Essential oils can be toxic and irritating to the skin so you have to use them in carrier oil.
