Alopecia (hair loss)

Alopecia is the medical description of hair loss from the head or body, sometimes to the extent of baldness. Causes of alopecia can be multifactorial. Unlike the common depilation of body hair, alopecia tends to be involuntary and displeasing. Alopecia can be categorized into non-scarring and focal, non-scarring and diffuse, or scarring and focal. Treatment of hair loss is individualized and includes topical medication to prolong the hair growth phase and may increase blood flow to the follicle, corticosteroid injections, oral medication that block conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone in androgenic alopecia.
