Cracking the Code
Alopecia or hair loss can not only affect your scalp but also your entire body. It can also be temporary or permanent. Alopecia can be caused by hormonal changes, medical conditions, or aging, or it can be hereditary. Alopecia is more common in men than women.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, causing hair loss. Telogen effluvium is alopecia caused by metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications. Code selection is based on the type of alopecia.
Signs and symptoms of hair loss may include gradual thinning on top of the head, circular or patchy bald spots, sudden loosening of hair, full-body hair loss, or patches of scaling that spread over the top of the scalp.
