Alopecia Areata Multilocularis
Alopecia Multilocularis is the next stage after Alopecia Monolocularis. This sequence would be seen as a spread of the initial phase from one bald spot or patch, the condition worsens to multiple spots around the scalp or any other part of the body.
Alopecia Multilocularis would develop numerous spots with different sizes. It can range from the size of dime to as big as an adult’s palm. However the sizes of the spots may vary from one another. Sometimes the spots can be so close to each other that the bald spots can merge to becoming one large spot.
This advancement may happen from as short as a month to a year depending on the severity of this autoimmune disorder. It also depends if any treatment is being administered on the initial spot.
The spread however remains unexplained similar to the reason as to what triggers the disease. The beginning and spread of Alopecia Areata has been a complex process especially with the patient being in perfect health condition.
