Baldness (Androgenetic Alopecia)
Baldness occurs both in men and women as their age advances.
The baldness which occurs in men is called "male pattern baldness" and is characterized by receding hairline and loss of hair on the crown area. It is generally experienced around and from age of 25 years.
The baldness which occurs in women is called "female pattern baldness" and is characterized by overall thinning of hair on scalp and little loss of hair on crown or hairline. This can begin at puberty but usually occurs after menopause.
The cause for both types of baldness is attributed to genetic factors which have been inherited.

Alopecia Areata
Small circular patches of baldness start appearing on the scalp and hair re-grows in these patches after few days. This is called as alopecia areata. Persons who are affected by this condition will have repeated hair fall and regrowth of the above mentioned pattern.
In severe conditions, total loss of scalp hair occurs - this is called as "alopecia totalis". Some times complete loss of body hair also occurs. This is called as "alopecia universalis". In few people, the hair re-grows, but the hair loss may occur once again - this is an autoimmune disease.
