Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes your hair to come out, often in clumps the size and shape of a quarter. The amount of hair loss is different for everyone. One or more bald spots occur commonly on the scalp, but this condition can also affect other hairy areas of the body, such as eyebrows, eyelashes, facial hair, private parts, and other body areas.

  • Auto-immune : The condition occurs when white blood cells attack the cells in hair follicles, causing them to shrink and dramatically slow down hair production. It is unknown precisely what causes the body’s immune system to target hair follicles in this way.
    The immune system attacks its own cells i.e., hair follicles.
    Hair follicles eventually stop producing hair.
    Bald spots appear :  predominantly on the scalp.
