Although alopecia areata is actually classified as an autoimmune disease, its cause is unknown. People who develop alopecia are usually in good health; however, certain individuals may also have other immune disorders such as thyroid disease. Some researchers believe that certain persons are genetically predisposed to the condition and that a trigger such a virus or another environmental factor, may launch it. Someone who has a family history of relatives with alopecia is more likely to exhibit it herself. The hair generally grows back but the follicle loss and regrowth may happen several times.
No completely effective treatments for alopecia are available, but they tend to include corticosteroid topical creams, steroid injections under the skin surface, or ultraviolet light therapy. Irritant drugs may also be applied to the scalp to initiate hair regrowth. Alopecia sufferers may also choose from a variety of natural looking wigs, including synthetic wigs and real hair wigs.
The type wig one chooses depends on the look and style she wants to achieve. Synthetic wigs are certainly cheaper, and in some ways, easier to maintain than real hair wigs. Made out of better, fibers, quality synthetic wigs no longer appear coarse and fake. Real hair wigs are more expensive but also more versatile; they can withstand the heat of styling tools.
If you think you are suffering from alopecia, contact your physician; the two of you can explore your options and come up with a treatment plan.
