Alopecia: Know Your Options

Alopecia affects the hair follicles, causing hair loss. Hair loss can be a few spots, around the size of a quarter, or more; it all depends on the person. While there is unfortunately no cure for alopecia, there are a few options for sufferers. If you suffer from this stressful disease, keep reading to learn how you can battle hair loss in relation to alopecia, and enjoy relief from its worrying symptoms.


Alopecia can cause moderate to severe hair loss.

Alopecia treatments

Unfortunately, there are no proven treatments specifically designed for alopecia. Hair loss medications prescribed by a doctor may help, but are not guaranteed to work for everyone who suffers hair loss from the disease. Research is being done to better understand alopecia, and efforts are being made to develop treatments, or even a cure. However, until then, there are options for sufferers, such as wigs.

Wigs for alopecia

A popular, and effective, option for sufferers of alopecia is the use of a wig. Wigs designed for medical conditions which cause hair loss are natural-looking, comfortable, and affordable. Many times, wigs for medical conditions are covered by health insurance. Having a wig to disguise hair loss is a confidence-booster which helps patients deal with their illnesses. Not to mention, a positive attitude assists in recovery with any disease.

Alopecia affects more than you may think. While you may feel embarrassed by your hair loss, you shouldn’t—hair loss can be caused by many things, and most people will deal with hair loss to some degree in their lifetime. What’s important is to know there are solutions, and there are many forms of support out there for anyone suffering from hair loss, including those who have alopecia.
