Alopecia is a baldness or hair loss on the scalp or other hairy regions of the body. That may be either psychological compulsion to pull out individual hair (trichotillomania) or the unforeseen consequences of voluntary hairstyling routines. In some cases, the reason is that male-pattern baldness is a genetically dominant feature. It may begin as early as 20 years in some individuals. For women, the hair normally gets thin only after the age of 50. The most common problems with bald hair are dandruff, graying, hair fall, brittleness and slow growth. Intensive medications and environmental pollution could be other reasons for severe hair loss. Temporary hair loss may occur in conjunction with a high fever, severe illness, thyroid disorders, iron deficiency, general anesthesia, drug treatments, hormonal imbalance, extreme stress, or after childbirth. Some of the most common types of Alopecia are:
Systemic lupus Erythematosus (lupus or SLE)
