Ophiasis Alopecia

Ophiasis Alopecia is a distinct and rare form of autoimmune hair loss. Typically, hair follicles are immune protected, but in cases like Ophiasis, they become vulnerable to immune system attacks. This condition primarily manifests as a band of hair loss at the back of the head. It can affect individuals regardless of age or gender. Some cases have a genetic link pointing to a possible hereditary component. Treatments for Ophiasis are still being explored, and its exact causes remain a subject of research. Additionally, there's a belief that elevated stress levels might worsen the condition. Emotional and psychological support is essential for those dealing with this type of hair loss.
