The medical term for hair loss is alopecia. There are a few common hair disorders that we see, including:
An extremely common condition, but by no means any less distressing, Male Pattern Baldness impacts a large proportion of men – from the teenage years to older age. Pattern hair loss is apparent in 50% of individuals by the age of 50 years and is due to genetic programming or hormonal influences.
Another common condition, it is usually located on the top and front of the scalp and whilst it can be inherited it is also influenced by hormones – including post-menopause.
Affecting children and adults of all skin and hair colours, alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition (where inflammation is impacting the hair follicles) that typically shows as patches of hair loss. The cause of this inflammation is often unknown but stress may play a part.
Excessive shedding of hair is known as telogen effluvium and can be caused post-pregnancy, by a fever, weight loss, haemorrhage, surgery, stress, and medications.
