Alopecia areata or totalis is tough to deal with, especially as a child. Many children with alopecia don’t have the confidence in them to go out or live a normal life. Hair loss can be devastating to a child's emotional health and self-esteem. Alopecia areata or totalis are auto-immune conditions where the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles. There is no cure and most sufferers are diagnosed before their 20th birthday. Children who are battling hair loss due to alopecia areata or other causes can have an extremely difficult time adjusting to life without hair. In addition to a loss of self-confidence, these children often are ridiculed or bullied due to their baldness or thinning hair.

Alopecia areata is a hair loss condition that affects men, women, and children. Alopecia is considered an autoimmune condition, in which the immune system, which is designed to protect the body from foreign invaders such as viruses and bacteria, mistakenly attacks the hair follicles leading to hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere. According to the American Hair Loss Association, 40 percent of people in the United States with hair loss are female and many women are too embarrassed to discuss it. Many women don't like discussing their hair loss or thinning hair, which in result decreases their self-esteem and may also cause depression. Men and women deal with alopecia differently.
