Hair Loss

Definition:

Hair loss is an umbrella term that describes exactly that. There are many causes of hair loss that fit into two broad categories: scarring vs. non-scarring.

What Causes Hair Loss:

Hair loss can occur in response to stressful life triggers, immune reactions, endocrine abnormalities, genetic factors, certain medications, infections and other inflammatory skin conditions.

Management Strategy:

Identify and treat the underlying cause and then treat the condition medically. Equally important is the psychological wellbeing followed by cosmetic management.
