Experts are of the opinion that these persons can suffer from alopecia areata, especially in the later part of their lives. This is often called as patchy hair loss. Such patches are also visible in eyebrows, arms, legs or on their face. It has been observed that, hair often grows back in the affected area within a period of 6 – 12 months respectively. But there is a chance that hair may grow out to be thin. This kind of disorder is generally considered as autoimmune condition.
