I am a 50 Year Old Woman with a Bald Patch and My Hair is falling outAnswer: Hi, Maureen. This sounds like a fairly classic case of Alopecia Areata and treatment is available.

Often triggered by a sudden shock or traumatic event, Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition which typically displays as patchy hair loss. This can affect anywhere on the scalp and tends to come on fairly suddenly. It may also spread from the initial location to other places on the scalp or the signature rounded bald patches may grow and join up.

The hair falls out when the onset of the condition disrupts the regular growth cycle, temporarily suspending normal hair production. Whilst in the majority of cases the hair will resume regular regrowth naturally, when or if this will happen is impossible to predict as very little is actually known about the condition, despite Alopecia Areata being the second most common cause of hair loss in the world behind androgenetic alopecia.

For those who want to try speeding up their regrowth results, treatment for Alopecia Areata featuring topical applications of high strength minoxidil have produced significant results for many Belgravia clients.  A hair loss specialist will be able to talk you through the condition in more depth as well as recommending a comprehensive treatment course personalised to your precise needs.
