Difficult Aspect of Alopecia Universalis
Alopecia Areata is a medical condition when the person that suffers from it, loses hair. Although it’s benign and it does not live scars, it can cause enormous stress for the patient. It can manifest itself in many different patterns. Types of alopecia areata are: diffuse alopecia areata, alopecia areata monolocularis, alopecia areata multilocularis, alopecia areata barbae, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis. The last two types are the rarest and the hardest forms of this disease. Alopecia areata totalis is total loss of hair on the scalp and alopecia alopecia universalis is the loss of hair over the entire scalp and body.
Comforting thing about this condition is that it is not painful and does not make people physically sick. It should be remembered it has no effect on life expectancy and it should not stop the sufferer from achieving their life goals, dreams and doing anything that a person without the condition can do. However, this hair loss condition can be hard to deal with, especially from an emotional aspect. Many of the suffers join support groups where others with the same condition can express the hopes, fears and how they deal with the condition on a day to day basis. This can be very reassuring for other hair loss suffers as they begin to understand that they are not alone and there are others who also understand what they are going through. Other sufferers will research the condition to try and educate themselves into all aspects of the disease.
Helping patients with alopecia universalis cope with depression and an unpredictable disease like alopecia areata can be achieved by several ways, including education of the patient about the nature of disease, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, antidepressants and support groups. Hypnotherapy may significantly improve depression, anxiety, and quality of life, but not hair regrowth.
Lack of body hair is not just esthetic problem. The disease lives you without eyelashes, eyebrows, nose hair so you became unprotected from dust, bacteria, sun and many other harmful elements. Most of us don’t even think about the hair that way. Alopecia Universalis may be short-termed or remain permanently. It’s always possible that the hair will grow back, even for those with 100% hair loss over many years, but it is not possible to predict when regrowth will occur.
Many forms of topical corticosteroids have been prescribed for alopecia areata, including creams, gels, ointments, lotions, and foams. Topical corticosteroids are far less effective in alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis . A highly potent topical corticosteroid under occlusion is the preferred method when using topical corticosteroids. Folliculitis is a common side effect to topical corticosteroids.
