I have alopecia universalis.

I wanted to know if drinking (i.e., the consumption) of alcohol on a regular basis prevents recovery. I couldn't find any definite answers online as to whether it makes the hair fall out or not.

Please do reply.

I have always had a bit of wine or light social drinker. However I went overboard due to depression in 2009 and had to cut it out all together. Ask your doctor to do a fasting blood sugar test if at all possible. And if your blood sugar runs normal I don't think an occasional spirit or wine or cordial would hurt (nor beer/ale etc :))

Any sort of stress on the body makes the alopecia worse, as far as I understand. Alcohol is basically poison, so I'm sure it doesn't help. That being said, it shouldn't affect you too much. Definitely ask a doctor.

I don't think so because there are children that deal with alopecia.
