Prognosis

Newline Maker

What is the prognosis for individuals with alopecia universalis?

The course of alopecia universalis is highly unpredictable, and the uncertainty of what will happen is probably the most difficult and frustrating aspect of the disease. Affected people may continue to lose hair, or hair loss may stop. The hair that has already been lost may or may not grow back.[1]
