Although the main symptom of alopecia is hair loss, charity Alopecia UK says: “However, in some people, hair loss can be accompanied by tingling, itching, burning, headaches or even pain in the skin.”

The charity also provides information on the causes of alopecia stating: “A family history of alopecia areata and/or of other autoimmune conditions are present in 10 – 25 percent of patients.

“People with alopecia areata are not only more likely to have other autoimmune diseases, but they are also more likely to have atopic conditions.”

Atopic conditions include eczema, asthma, hay fever, and atopic dermatitis.
