Cicatricial alopecia

The cicatricial alopecia is a hair loss due to a physical or chemical trauma to the scalp. In this type of alopecia, the hair root is permanently destroyed (hair follicles), due to inflammation: so there are cicatricial areas with fibrous tissue where the hair will not grow back. Different factors can cause this type of alopecia: accident, burns, radiation, bacteria or viruses, tumors of the skin, lupus, scleroderma, congenital defect, etc... The scalp skin affected becomes smooth, shiny and usually of a different color than the skin that is not affected.
