Hair Fall: Your Mystery, Debunked

About

A medical condition where hair falls out due to unexplained or hereditary reasons from the scalp or all across the body.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, there are over 30 million cases of hair fall alone in women living in the United States. [1]

-Affects men, women, and children
-Requires blood tests, pull test, and a scalp biopsy for diagnosis
-Risk factor increases with age
-Treatment involves medications and surgery

Hair fall is a common dilemma that affects all ages and genders. Genetics play a role in recurring cases of hair fall in the family. Some of the many reasons behind hair loss in patients are psychological stress, trauma, childbirth, flu, and changes in medications.

Symptoms

Common symptoms of hair fall are changes in the appearance of the scalp due to thinning or falling of hair.

Sudden hair loss due to loosening up of the hair follicles
Circular spots or bald-patched appearances
Whole body hair fall
Patchy-scaled spots that spread across the scalp

Treatment

Self-care: Avoid using harsh chemical products and don't bleach the hair follicles. Use a mild shampoo and soft brush for combing and grooming.
Medications: If your hair loss is due to anemia, you may try using iron supplements. Your doctor will recommend you oral contraceptives, anti-androgen drugs, or a hair transplant depending on the results of your diagnosis.
