What is Alopecia Areata? Treatments and Home Remedies

Alopecia areata is a medical disorder in which hair is lost from a few or all areas of the body, typically from the scalp. Alopecia areata is not usually a severe medical disorder, but it can cause a lot of anxiety and stress. When you have an autoimmune condition, your immune system bombards your own body by mistake. Alopecia areata can be cured. Hair loss can be provoked by various reasons, including the destruction of the hair shaft or follicles and fungal infections.

The damage experienced by the hair follicles is usually not of a permanent nature.
