Matt Lucas health: Bake Off host on his alopecia – 'I found several hairs on my pillow'

1 min read


As Matt experienced for himself, Medical News Today confirmed alopecia areata “often develops suddenly, over the course of just a few days”.

There is no cure for the condition, but corticosteroids can be offered by a GP to “suppress the immune system”.

Other prescribed medications that “either promote hair growth or affect the immune system” include the following:

  • Minoxidil
  • Anthralin
  • SADBE
  • DPCP

“Although some of these may help with the re-growth of hair, they cannot prevent the formation of new bald patches,” certified Medical News Today.
