a loss of all scalp and body hair.
Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis are variations of Alopecia Areata at its most extreme. It is not known why a person will suffer just a few bald patches and another experience total hair loss. Alopecia Totalis may start as bald patches and progress over a period of months or hair may fall acutely over a period of days or weeks.
The recovery probability of Alopecia Totalis and Universalis is lower than that of Alopecia Areata. Recovery is more likely in those who seek immediate help, than those who have had the problem for years.
Many patients who have sought help at The Sehat Scalp and Hair Clinic have achieved full recovery within 12 months. Others, sadly do not react to any form of treatment, medical or complementary.
