Alopecia Help and Advice (Scotland) is a locally based charity setting out to help people suffering from Alopecia Areata. We aim to help sufferers and their families with support and information on this medical condition. We also have a longer term aim to contribute to research into the condition.
Alopecia Areata is an unpredictable cause of hair loss. It can occur at any age and usually starts as an isolated patch of hair loss.
In most cases the hair regrows quickly. However in a small proportion of cases the condition progresses to complete scalp or body hair loss. We cannot diagnose the condition but our website can provide you with really useful information before you make an appointment with your GP.
