Abstract

Hair loss (Alopecia areata) is one of the most common problems people face, the cause being today's lifestyle. Alopecia areata, also known as spot baldness, is a disease in which hair is removed from any or more parts of the body. It also results in a few bald spots on the forehead, each about the size of a coin. Psychological tension is likely to occur. Alopecia areata is thought to be an infectious disease. Risk factors are the family history of the disease. In the identical twins, if one is affected, the other has a 50 percent risk of being affected as well. The fundamental cause includes the body's inability to identify its own cells and the resulting immune-mediated degradation of the hair follicle. Efforts can be used to attempt to speed up hair development, such as cortisone injections. Typically, onset is in infancy. Males and females have the same number of conditions. The disorder does not affect the life expectancy of a person. In cases of extreme hair loss, modest improvement has been obtained with the use of corticosteroids such as clobetasol or fluocinonide, corticosteroid injections or cream. Oral corticosteroids can alleviate hair loss, but only during the time of which they are used, and these medications can induce severe side effects. In these cases, no one therapy is successful and certain people do not show any reaction to any treatment. Indralupta is being correlated with the Alopecia areata by modern methods. Ayurveda recommends surgical procedures such as Siraveda, Prachana, Lekhana and parasurgical procedures such as Jalukavacharana in Indralupta. Huge amounts of drugs for external use in the form of medicinal, mineral and single drugs are also listed. Many curative and preventive steps such as Nasya, Rasayana, Murdha taila (Abhyanga, Pichu, Shirodhara, Shirobasti), Pathya-Apathya are also listed.
