Alopecia Areata - FAQs

Can my hair really re-grow?

Yes. Unlike in male-pattern baldness, where the hair follicle shrinks, there is no damage to the hair follicle in alopecia areata. All the hair that is lost can come back with the right treatment.

I am losing hair in patches. I have noticed that some patches fill up while new ones appear. Do I need treatment?

Yes, you do. Alopecia areata is a condition which is known to come and go. So, patches filling up while new ones are appearing at the same time show that the condition is not under control. With effective treatment, your patches can fill up by preventing new ones from appearing.

I treated my alopecia areata with steroids, which worked for some time, but the patches have reappeared. What can I do?

There are some treatments that can help grow your hair temporarily. However, most of these treatments cannot prevent a relapse of your condition. A study conducted at Dr Batra's ™ showed that 91% patients did not relapse (reappearance of patches) as opposed to 50% patients who showed relapse with the conventional treatment of allopathy.

Can external treatments help me get treated for alopecia areata?

No. Alopecia areata is an internal condition caused by the immune system, and this ailment needs medical treatments to address its underlying causes.
