Alopecia Areata: My Head Is Being Filled With Bald Patches, Help! by chipsypop(m): 4:45pm On Feb 05
Good day all. Sometime last year I just woke up one morning and noticed a bald patch in the middle of my head overnight. When I googled it I found out that it is called ALOPECIA AREATA and that it has no cure. I learnt that it is caused by the body's defence system fighting the hell cells for no reason.

Pls I would like to know if any Nairalander has experienced this before and how he or she handled it.

Mods Pls move to front page, abeg help a brother

It’s hereditary.. Sometimes it’s permanent and sometimes you may be lucky..

It depending on the genesis of where it came from..

But make sure you’re protecting your head from the sun...Meaning you gaz dey put on Face-cap whenever you wan comot..

Sounds like a conflict of interest between your immune system and your hair cells.

But at this point all you need to do is manage your stress level.

If you're sure it is what you stated, then there's no cure for now.

Go bald and live a stress free life. There are also medications that may help. But please speak to a specialist before you start taking anything.
