Causes of hair loss
The causes of hair loss are various and can happen in both men and women. Genetics, physical injury, or an underlying condition that can cause the hair to thin or create bald spots can all be causes of alopecia. Here are some different hair loss conditions:
Alopecia areata: This is a small, circular area of sudden hair loss that happens without any symptoms. The beard and eyebrows can also be affected, as well as other hairs on the body.
Telogen effluvium: This type of hair loss can be reversed. It happens due to extreme stress, and sometimes from a new medication.
Tinea capitis. This is a fungal infection on the scalp. It can cause small scaly spots on the scalp that may also have pustules. This can result in permanent hair loss.
Cicatricial alopecia: This refers to hair loss that creates permanent scarring. The hair follicles left behind are destroyed and scar tissue forms rather than growing more hair.
Nutritional deficiency: If your body is in need of sufficient protein or iron, among other vitamins, it can lead to hair loss. However, a true vitamin deficiency is very rare.
Thyroid conditions: Thyroid problems are a famous cause of hair loss. Doctors often suggest checking this if you have hair loss that appears to have no underlying cause.
