Information and Facts About Alopecia

 

There are over half a million Australians and around 6.5 million americans living with Alopecia - a condition where people lose their hair from all areas of the body including the scalp, for which there is currently no known cure.

 

Approximately 60% of people diagnosed are under the age of 20, and for children especially, hair loss can have a negative impact on their self-esteem, which in many cases is linked to anxiety, depression, impaired academic performance and lack of social inclusion. To support children affected by the condition, Australia Alopecia Areata Foundation & Variety grants wigs - helping children gain their confidence and feel more comfortable amongst their peers.

 

* Alopecia (al-oh-PEE-shah) is a HAIRLOSS Condition, that can cause round patches of baldness, or total body hairless.

 

* There are 3 Main Types of Alopecia: Alopecia Areata - round patches / bald spots, Alopecia Totalis - complete Scalp baldness and Alopecia Universalis - total hair loss from body and scalp.

 

*Alopecia Areata is a believed to be a AUTOIMMUNE disease: the immune system mistakenly attacks the body (hair follicles) instead of defending it.

 

*Alopecia Areata affects MEN & WOMEN equally.  It can occur at ANY AGE, often begins during childhood or early teen years.  It does not discriminate on race.

 

*Alopecia is NOT Contagious.
