Hello,
Thanks for writing your query.

Hair loss is defined as an abnormal condition of the body, which causes hair fall at a fast rate leading to partial or complete loss of hair. To treat hair loss we need to first know what the exact cause is.

Common signs of hair loss – Losing around 50 to 100 strands a day are normal, but beyond this, it is a concern, Pain and itching in scalp, Rapid hair loss at an early age, sudden increase in hair fall due to application of any product like oil, gel or shampoo

Common causes of hair loss –

• Emotional stress or shock

Hormonal imbalance

• Genetic - – Family genetics from the father or mother side of family lineage can be a cause of hair loss too.

• Nutritional - Hair is made up of proteins and its growth aided by several minerals and vitamins, a slight imbalance of these in your diet can trigger hair loss.

Anemia – Try to improve iron content in your diet.

• Diet and weight loss – Have a healthy balanced nutritious diet.

• Lifestyle - A hassled lifestyle with respect to stress, sleep and working also impacts hair loss to a great extent.

There are many causes of hair loss. You need to find what is exact cause for your hair. Try to XXXXXXX a Trichologist or a dermatologist who can help you to find an exact cause.

Take care. I hope I have answered you query. In case you have any further question I will be happy to help you.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
