Abstract: Hair is an epidermal appendage, composed of a protein called keratin. The hair follicle supports the hair shaft and regulates its growth. Around 100 strands of hair are lost everyday due to the hair growth cycle. Excessive loss of hair is termed as Alopecia. Alopecia areata affects nearly 2% of the general population at some point during their lifetime. Though hair has hardly any functional attributes in humans, alopecia is not only a great cosmetological concern but also a psychological trauma!
The Case below demonstrates the Homoeopathic Management of Alopecia Areata in a 6 year old patient, with a positive family history of the same, who had previously taken allopathic medicines, without much improvement in his condition. Integrated knowledge of Trichology paves way for Individualistic Homoeopathic Remedy Selection and its application through Clinical Training.
