Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata


Ayurvedic Name: Inderalupta | Responsible Dosha: Pitta & Vata

Ayurveda describes alopecia by use of terms such as “indralupt” “Khalitya” and “ruhya”. When there is a sudden loss of hair, it is considered as “indralupt”, while a long term hair loss is termed as “Khatilya”. It is believed that indralupt generally affects beard, while khatilya affects the scalp and when the entire body is affected, it is called “ruhya”.

Alopecia usually occurs on the scalp; hair loss elsewhere on the body is less common. In the nonscarring form of this disorder (noncicatricial alopecia), the hair follicle can generally regrow hair.

Common Forms of Alopecia includes:

  • Scarring: This is the loss of hair follicles, causing permanent hair loss. Cutaneous lupus erythematous and fungal kerions are the most prevalent forms of scarring alopecia.
  • Nonscarring: In this case, the hair shaft is gone, but the follicles are still present. Because the hair follicles still exist, it often is reversible. It can, however, develop into the scarring type. Hair loss lasts approximately six months. Common types of non-scarring alopecia are:
  • Alopecia Areata (Ruhya in Ayurveda): Hair loss occurring in form of patches anywhere on the body.
  • Alopecia Universalis (Ruhya in Ayurveda): Total loss of all hair on the body.

Alopecia usually occurs on the scalp; hair loss elsewhere on the body is less common.
