What is ophiasis?

Ophiasis is a variant of alopecia areata characterized by hair loss in a specific band-like pattern across the back and side of the scalp. This form of alopecia may be difficult to treat due to the location of the hair loss and not having many treatments that target this type.

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.
