A woman with alopecia totalis.
Alopecia totalis is the loss of all head hair. Its causes are unclear, but believed to be autoimmune. Stress is thought to be a contributor in alopecia areata. However, many with the disorder lead relatively low stress lives.
Methotrexate and corticosteroids are proposed treatments. Traditionally, Egg Yolk Oil or simply Egg Oil was used in Unani (Greek) and Chinese medicine systems to treat Alopecia by massaging well into the scalp and leaving it on overnight.
