Alopecia areata is a sudden onset of non-scarring and inflammatory patchy hair loss. Western medicine mostly believes it is related to immune factors, while Chinese medicine mostly believes it is related to blood and wind deficiency. Professor Han Shirong has been engaged in clinical dermatology treatment for many years and believes that blood stasis is the main pathogenesis, so treatment should be based on activating blood circulation and removing blood stasis. The combination of generalization and supplementation is used to achieve the goal of eliminating stasis and creating new blood.
