Alopecia Help and Advice (Scotland) is a charity which helps people with alopecia areata. It was originally set up by the mothers of two girls with alopecia areata who live in Grangemouth and Edinburgh.

The charity is advised by a consultant dermatologist at The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh who has an interest in alopecia areata.

Although they offer support and help to people with alopecia areata, they cannot diagnose the condition. If you suspect you have alopecia areata, you should make an appointment with your GP, who may then refer you to a skin specialist.

One of the main purposes of the charity is to support people who have alopecia areata. They arrange meetings in Glasgow and Edinburgh, twice a year. Dates of the meetings are published in their newsletter which is distributed to everyone on their database at least twice a year.

Their longer term aim is to be in a position to fund medical research into the causes of alopecia areata and to assist in the research and development of possible treatments.
