Alopecia areata can have a devastating impact on a persons confidence. Whereas regular pattern baldness is a progressive condition that develops over time, alopecia areata can strike quickly, randomly and aggressively. Affecting children as well as adults, few conditions are as challenging to deal with.
Compounding the issue is the lack of a cure. Although a number of ‘treatments’ exist, none actually cure the condition. In many cases, traditional remedies recommended by doctors are entirely ineffective.
