What is hypotrichosis? Can you just spell it out rather than giving us a quizz?

Hypotrichosis is the state of having a less than normal amount of hair on the head or body.Hypotrichosis is the term dermatologists use to describe a condition where there has never been any hair growth. It affects an individual right from birth and it usually stays with them throughout their lives.

Alopecia on the other hand is an acquired loss of hair. There was once hair growth, but there isn’t any more.
