People with a confirmed diagnosis of alopecia areata are invited to participate in an online study which aims to show the impact of alopecia areata on people’s lives, particularly the psychological and emotional distress that it causes. This is especially relevant now that new drugs are in development and currently going through the approval process for the treatment of alopecia areata.

The Alopecia and Me study is inviting people with alopecia areata to spend approximately 10-15 minutes completing and submitting an online questionnaire. Questions will cover the impact of alopecia areata on quality of life, perception of alopecia, and the stigma associated with it. You will also be asked about your socioeconomic circumstances. 

 Your responses will be collected anonymously, and the study does not include any clinical consultations and it will not affect any treatment that you receive.

Who can take part?

- You have received a diagnosis of alopecia areata (including alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis)

- You are aged 18+

- You are living in the UK
