Round smooth and soft bald patches that appear very suddenly are the symptoms of alopecia areata. Also known as spot baldness, this kind of hair loss is not always permanent.
Often associated with an emotional trauma, a medication, an infection or even stress, it's an auto-immune reaction where the body attacks the hair follicle cells.
The hair on the edge of the bald patches comes off easily, but the hair follicle under the skin is still there, ready to resume growth at the right signal from the body. But this may take anything from a few weeks up to several years. While there is no miracle cure, the odds to stimulate re-growth are vastly improved when acting quickly.
