The most frequent indication of alopecia is patchy hair loss. The patches are just a few centimetres in diameter or smaller than that. 

You may experience the symptoms in several other parts of your face, including your eyebrows, eyelashes, beard. Along with this, you may experience hair fall in other body parts as well.

What causes alopecia areata, and what causes it? 

Alopecia areata is an allergic condition. An autoimmune disease develops as the immune response misidentifies normal cells as foreign invaders. The immune system usually protects viruses and bacteria. 


If you have alopecia areata, though, your immune system accidentally kills your hair follicles. The follicles shorten and stop producing hair, resulting in hair loss. The exact cause of this illness is still unclear. 

  • People with a family history of autoimmune disorders such as type 1 diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to have it. This is why some research suggests genetics can play a role in alopecia areata formation.
  • Some environmental factors cause alopecia areata in patients that are genetically predisposed to the disorder.


So, what are all the patchy hair loss treatments in Surat 

Although no treatment can cure alopecia areata, there are medications that can help slow down or accelerate hair development. 


1 . Medicines that can be applied to the skin

Applying topical drugs to your scalp may bring back your hair. A wide range of drugs is there in the market. It includes: 


Minoxidil (Rogaine): 

It is an over-the-counter product that you apply to your hair, eyebrows, and mustache twice a day. Although the improvements can take up to one year to show, it seems to be in good health. It just seems to benefit people with alopecia areata who have only minor hair loss. 



It is a topical medicine that itches the skin to promote hair regrowth. 


Clobetasol (Impoyz):

You can get it in various forms, including lotions, foam, and ointments. It can reduce swelling in your hair follicles. 


Topical immunotherapy: It is a method of causing an allergic response in your skin by applying chemicals, such as diphencyprone. In six months, you will see rashes, which resemble poison oak, can regrow new hair follicles. To keep the regrowth going, you’ll need to keep the operation going. 


2. Injections can also be used

We can suggest you steroid injections as a standard treatment option for patchy alopecia, which is not so severe in nature. The steroid is injected into the infected regions of your skin with tiny needles. To regain the hair, you will have to repeat the procedure every month. 


3. Medications to take orally : 

Our doctor can suggest Cortisone tablets to treat severe alopecia. Before starting this medication, visit our doctor first. Oral immunosuppressants can also be suggested. They help by counteracting the immune system’s reaction, but you can only use them for a short time. 


There can be a few side effects as well. Liver complications, renal failure, increased blood pressure are some of the side effects of these medications.

Q. Hi Doctor, I have had severe hairfall for last 6-7 years, I lost more than 75% of my hair. Surprisingly enough though, there are no bald patches. I have consulted many doctors for a treatment. I underwent some tests 4 years back, they were all normal. I repeated the tests last year. and all (cbc, thyroid profile, Ana, vit D) were normal except for slightly dropping vit D levels, where i was given 3 doses of Vit D. Currently i am consuming multivitamins, and using piligrow hair spray as well as climbazam shampoo. I'm a medical student and experience stress. Could this possibly be a genetic issue since my mom had faced the same problem in her 20s and as my 3 sisters are also experiencing the same? And Is there any cure for this?
