WHAT IS ALOPECIA?

Alopecia areata is “a common condition of undetermined etiology characterized by circumscribed, nonscarring, usually asymmetric areas of baldness on the scalp, eyebrows, and bearded portion of the face.”

In the majority of cases, hair falls out in small patches around the size of a quarter. For most people, the hair loss is nothing more than a few patches, though in some cases it can be more extreme.

Sometimes, it can lead to the complete loss of hair on the scalp (alopecia totalis ) or, in extreme cases, the entire body (alopecia universalis).

Alopecia areata is considered to be an autoimmune disease, where the immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s own cells instead of harmful foreign invaders.

In the case of alopecia areata, the immune system attacks the hair follicles causing inflammation, which leads to hair loss.For appointments call 9004839333,Clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai.

 

SYMPTOMS OF HERPIS

Most people do not have apparent symptoms for many months, or even years after becoming infected. Those who do have symptoms during the initial period will usually notice them about 4-7 days after being infected.

Primary infection symptoms

Primary infection is a term used for an outbreak of genital herpes that occurs when a person is first infected.

Primary infection symptoms, if they are experienced, are usually more severe than later recurrences.

Symptoms can last up to 20 days and may include:

  • Blisters and ulceration on the cervix
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Pain when urinating
  • High temperature (fever)
  • Malaise (feeling unwell)
  • Cold sores around the mouth
  • Red blisters – these are generally painful; they soon burst and leave ulcers on the external genital area, thighs, buttocks, and rectum

In most cases, the ulcers will heal, and the patient will not have any lasting scars.
