The term Alopecia signifies an ailment where tracks of hair loss are noted from the hair or body. It may gradually progress to complete baldness.

Treatments for androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition in which the body mistakes the hair for a foreign object and begins to attack the follicles.

Androgenic or Androgenetic Alopecia has an androgenetic element that occurs in both men and women. A by-product of testosterone called DHT binds and closes the follicles until hair grows thinner and thinner until eventually no further hair grows.

Symptoms Observed: Initially partial hair loss is detected with the hair thinning and later on baldness may occur. Physical symptoms are dandruff, skin lesions, scarring and a circular pattern of hair loss. The temple or the crown area is mostly affected in males whereas in females it occurs on the frontal or parietal part.

Causes: Acne conditions, psychological stress, low nutrition level, poor metabolism and genetics are few of the reasons behind Androgenic Alopecia. Acne tends to release excessive amount of sebum on the scalp which is generally due to hormonal imbalances. A loss of self esteem is the major cause for psychological stress in these cases. An obsessive need for weight loss ultimately leading to low nutrition consumption is also responsible for Androgenic Alopecia. Intake of various medications, high blood pressure, diabetes, chemotherapy, steroids or oral contraceptive use may also cause Alopecia.

Diagnosis: Since the symptoms of Alopecia do not occur at an inflated rate testing is subtle.

  • The Pull Test: 3 different strands of hair are gently pulled upon. If more than 3 hairs are pulled out from each then the Pull Test is evaluated as positive.
  • The Pluck Test: Plucking out hair by the roots and later tested  microscopically to diagnose any telogen and anagen phase defects. Anagen traits manifest an increased number of broken hairs.
  • Scalp Biopsy: This is done under circumstances where the diagnosis is inconclusive.
  • Daily Hair Counts: Counting the lost hairs on a daily basis when the pull test proves to be negative.
  • Trichoscopy: This is a non invasive method of examining the hair and scalp.

Treatment: If hair loss is severe, it can be treated by corticosteroid injections or cream. In these more difficult cases patience is a must in order to attain positive results.
