Alopecia Areata Types: Totalis, Universalis, Anagen & Telogen Effluvium


Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is a minor patching hair loss autoimmune disease. It is expected to be induced by a genetic susceptibility and environmental stimulus. It can impact the hair or any other part of the body.

There could be one or more round or oval areas. The scalp can look normal or smooth, and any erythema or swelling in the region of hair loss is rare.

Male Pattern Hair Loss 

It is often characterised by a diminishing hairline and dilution of the top of the head and the cap. It can begin in or after late teens. Certain factors, biology and lifestyle choices have made progress somewhat specific. The sides and back of the head will remain unchanged.

Female Pattern Hair Loss 

Female hair loss is usually caused by diffuse dilution on the scalp, but the hairline generally is not diminished. In comparison to men, menopause is more normal and a range of factors linked to hormone activity may trigger it.

Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia

In African American women, it is the most severe scarring of alopecia. This is a scientifically important area with incremental hair loss, reaching to the periphery. Most claim that the affected area has pain, scratching and a modified feeling. The hair follicle may be permanently damaged by inflammation.

Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia

It is characterised by hair loss and wound on the head and hairline around the scalp. To avoid conclusive scarring and permanent loss, early detection and timely care are required. The primary goal is to prevent infection and the development of the disease.

Anagen Effluvium

A fast sum in a short period of time with hair loss. Generally, this comes from a shock to the system. The hair stops growing although it is in the (growing) anagen process. Hair is broken, delicate and quickly breaks away. This may also be caused by chemotherapy or by Alopecia Areata.

Telogen Effluvium

It is a common form of diffuse hair loss when the body becomes stressful, like extreme diseases, influenza, major operations, child borns, and nutrient deficiencies. The hair which is the anagen (growth) or catagen (transitional) will pass into the telogen phase and fall afterward.

Traction Alopecia

It is mainly the result of force dragging by the progressive loss of hair. The explanation is technical, primarily because of the tightness of the ponytails and braids. Hair extensions, trimmings or even roller sleep may contribute to persistent loss in other places.

Alopecia Totalis and Universalis

The Alopecia totalis and universalis forms of the areata are both more severe.

Totalis is the overall loss of hair on your head, plus your eyelashes and brows. Universalis is the complete hair loss across the body.

Both of these clots are damaged and split and are often skewed. Scarring none remains alive, but follicles dissolve in both situations.
