Alopecia Support Group
The medical condition called alopecia is when the hair falls out in round patches. The hair can fall out on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. It happens when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing hair loss. Alopecia is not contagious nor due to nerves. It is an autoimmune disorder which causes the hair to come out, often in clumps the size and shape of a quarter. The amount of hair loss is different for everyone. Some people lose it only in a few spots. Others lose a lot. The condition can affect anyone regardless of age and gender, though most cases are reported before the age of 30.
