Will Your Child Inherit Alopecia From You?

Will Your Child Inherit Alopecia From You?

Alopecia Areata is autoimmune, non-life-threatening disease that often results in hair loss. It can happen to anyone at any time without warning and without any other symptoms. It does not cause any physical pain, and people with the condition are generally healthy otherwise. The body’s immune system, which is designed to protect the body from viruses and bacteria, mistakenly attacks hair follicles, the tiny cup shaped structures from which hairs grow. This process can lead to hair loss on the scalp and other areas of the body. Alopecia Areata typically causes small to medium sized round or oval patched on the scalp, eyebrows and beard. The cause of alopecia , as with many autoimmune diseases, is not known. It's thought, however, that some environmental, viral or genetic triggers may predispose some people to Alopecia Areata more than others.

Alopecia influences a person primarily on social and emotional level. It often occurs in people whose family members have other autoimmune diseases, such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, pernicious anemia, or Addison's disease. People who have Alopecia Areata do not usually have other autoimmune diseases, but they do have a higher occurrence of thyroid disease, Atopic eczema, nasal allergies, and asthma.

It often begins in childhood. If you have a close family member with the disease, your risk of developing it is slightly increased. If your family member lost his or her first patch of hair before age 30, the risk to other family members is greater. Overall, one in five people with the disease has a family member who has it as well. However, alopecia areata is not like some genetic diseases in which a child has a high chance of developing the disease if one parent has it. It is not likely that a child would inherit all of the genes needed to predispose him or her to the disease.

The thing that annoys people the most is the uncertainty about hair growth. There is every chance that your hair will re-grow, but it may also fall out again. No one can predict when it might re-grow or fall out. The course of the disease varies from person to person. Some people lose just a few patches of hair, then the hair re-grows, and the condition never recurs. Other people continue to lose and re-grow hair for many years. A few lose all the hair on their head; some lose all the hair on their head, face, and body. Even in those who lose all their hair, the possibility for full re-growth remains. In some, the initial hair re-growth is white, with a gradual return of the original hair color. In most, the re-grown hair is ultimately the same color and texture as the original hair.
