About

This condition is characterized by a less or insufficient quantity of hair growth on your scalp or body. It may be due to several factors or any underlying condition.

The condition may lead to hair loss across your body or scalp. It may be due to several factors such as nutrition, diet, hormonal changes, or any underlying condition. The hair in the body may be taking more time than required to grow.

Ages affected: May occur in any age group; incidence is unknown.
