Alopecia Areata is an auto-immune disease which causes hair loss on scalp, face, and at times on other body parts as well. Beard alopecia is quite common amongst men in India.
Commonly the hair falls out in small patches, it can affect anyone regardless their age or gender.
The most common form of alopecia areata treatment is the use of corticosteroids, powerful anti-inflammatory drugs that can suppress the immune system. These are mostly commonly administered through local injections, topical ointment application, or orally.
