Alopecia Areata Causes

Many research had been carried out on Alopecia Areata however the causes still remain unknown. A strong theory  indicates that Alopecia Areata is a type of Autoimmune Disease, however what causes this medical disorder still remains a mystery.

These research have contributed towards identifying various causes of other hair loss while leading us closer to the ultimate goal of identifying Alopecia Areata causes. While enlightening the dark path, these research have carved new paths which prove to be leading the scientists to a definite answer for this ambigous condition.

Even now no clear cause had been assigned as the root cause of Alopecia Areata. This has been the main reason why no accurate medication can be prescribed by the modern medical practitioners. Since the cause can not be determined, there are no treatments that can be assigned as a remedy for this medical condition.

However a group scientists have discovered a treatment sourced out of a plant found in the Tropical forest that has proven to be highly effective for Alopecia Areata.

For now the few shortlisted and highly possible causes are:

1.     STRESS
2.     GENETIC
3.     DISEASES AND DRUGS
4.     EXTENSIVE HAIR STYLING

All of the above had been derived from research and observations carried on numerous Alopecia Areata patients. These causes, untill lately, had remained hypothetical. For example stress as we all know is a condition that is experienced by a large share of the population.

However only 1%-2% of the total world population is affected by Alopecia Areata. This draws many questions, one of which is, whether stress is a cause or the result of Alopecia Areata. A person is evaluated for stress only after and not before getting Alopecia Areata.

Meanwhile same situation is experienced in considering drugs and diseases as a cause. This subjective doubt arises when patients suffering from other sickness start experiencing Alopecia Areata on themselves after administration of certain treatments.

There are parties that argue on the fact that the bald spots are noticed after beginning of some medication. This has resulted to a concern on the actual cause of Alopecia Areata.
