Alopecia Areata/Hairloss

Patient

Q: I have Alopecia Areata. It started as one circle on my head and after a few months a new one came. I am scared that a third one and forth one will come. What can I do?

Symptoms:  To hairless circles on my head.
Doctor

A:   Hello,
thanks for your query on ATD.

Alopecia areata is a condition with natural healing within a year. However, new bald area may appear at new sites. If there is a rapid spread of area & number of lesions it is time to visit your Dermatologist.

Hope this helps.
Good wishes.
