Alopecia Universalis Causes & Cure

Alopecia Universalis is a rare type of hair loss disease in which total hair loss is found on scalp or whole body. This type of hair loss is not very common but still there are cases where this type of hair loss is found. This can cause complete hair loss on human body and scalp unlike other types of hair loss where only scalp or body is affected. The basic symptom of Alopecia Universalis is that you start losing hair from your scalp and whole body parts. Hair from inside of your nose can also be fallen in Alopecia Universalis and a burning and itching feeling can also be felt around the affected areas. It is still to find the real cause of Alopecia Universalis but the researches have shown that this type of hair loss is caused by the failure of auto immune system or we can say the wrong way of working by autoimmune system. 

Following are some possible causes of Alopecia Universalis:

Autoimmune Attacks :

This is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immunity system starts killing its own cells and Alopecia Universalis occurs when immunity system takes the hair follicles as the harmful elements for the body. So to defend your body from these harmful elements which are in reality not harmful, immune system attacks the hair follicles and kills them that causes Alopecia Universalis. Sometimes the autoimmune attacks are so severe that whole body hair fall from the body and also from the scalp. Sometimes the attacks are not so severe that only partially hair fall is seen on body and scalp.

Genetics Reasons :

This ailment can be genetically transferred to the new generations. In most number of cases of Alopecia Universalis is it seen that one of the family members from last or second last generation has the Alopecia Universalis and this shows that it can be transferred genetically. So if you are facing this disease then it might root in your genes and might be followed to affect your younger generations. The most number of Autoimmune diseases have this tendency to go from one generation to the other hence the Alopecia Universalis is also can be caused by genetic reasons. 

Other Autoimmune Diseases :

Sometimes some other autoimmune disease can cause Alopecia Universalis by enhancing the hair follicles autoimmune disease. Vitiligo and Thyroid diseases are the most common autoimmune diseases that can cause auto immune to kill hair follicles. Thyroid diseases are the common cause for this because the glands are expanded in thyroid disease and immune system starts working slow and against the body’s useful cells due to the reason of cells produced by thyroid disease. This works as a circle that means auto one immune disease cause others.

IT is seen that stress is a cause of a number of diseases and Alopecia Universalis is one of them. Yes the researches show that person who takes a lot of stress can have hair fall issues and Alopecia Universalis. When a person takes stress his/her mind doesn’t support well and with this his/her body doesn’t work well and immunity system gets confused as well. This will cause immunity system to work in a wrong manner and once immunity system goes wrong all go wrong. You body starts killing those important cells that are useful for your body and when immune system start recognizing hair follicles as false inside the body it will start killing them and Alopecia Universalis is caused.
