Inherited baldness in men
Baldness caused by follicular infection
Autoimmune caused baldness
Usually, in the presence of an infection, the body’s immune system handles it well, but when alopecia areata occurs the hair follicles are attacked by the immune system, often resulting in hair loss of a temporary nature. If individuals already have other common autoimmune conditions, such as diabetes related to the thyroid, vitiligo or Down’s syndrome, alopecia areata can take place more often. The tendency for this disorder may also be inherited.
