Alopecia Trichologist in Bolton

Alopecia is a term used to describe hair loss. The causes of alopecia areata are varied but can be treated successfully. Alopecia areata is typically patches of circular hair loss with hard or abrupt borders which can appear suddenly or gradually over months.

Some people develop a single bald patch or many patches which join together to form large areas of baldness. Very rarely some cases progress to Alopecia Totalis (total loss of scalp hair) or Alopecia Universalis (total loss of all hair).

If you are concerned that you may have alopecia, act sooner rather than later by seeking advice from a qualified, reputable trichologist like Callaghan Trichology.

Causes of Alopecia Areata

The causes of alopecia areata are wide and varied and can include viruses, accidents, poor health, shock, extreme stress, medication or just a bang on the head which can trigger the condition.

Alopecia areata is more common in people who have a family history of it, also people who have asthma, eczema and hay fever are more likely to develop it.

Studies have shown that alopecia areata could be an immune system malfunction where your body's own immune system attacks healthy hair follicles causing scalp soreness, tingling, burning or stinging as a result.
