Alopecia universalis in india is the most severe form of alopecia areata, an inflammatory disease of the hair follicle, which is characterized by a complete loss of hair of the scalp and all the hair-bearing areas of the body.
When you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks your own body. With alopecia areata, its the hair follicles that are attacked. This causes the hair to come out, often in clumps the size and shape of a quarter. The amount of hair loss is different in everyone. Some people lose it only in a few spots. Others lose a lot.
It’s rare, but you can lose all the hair on your head (alopecia areata totalis) or entire body (alopecia areata universalis).
Each case of alopecia universalis is different. Sometimes, hair grows back but falls out again later. In others, hair grows back for good.
