In some cases, Alopecia Areata can be permanent. If the patch has been inactive (not growing hair) for long, the follicle might forget how to produce a hair. The psychological impact of being a patient with a patch of hair loss may trigger subsequent patches.
If you are suffering from Alopecia Areata, contact an experienced hair loss treatment specialist as soon as possible.
