Medical Hair Loss
At Eunice's Hair- Medical Wig Solutions, we believe that knowledge is empowering.
If you or a loved one is experiencing medical-related hair loss, understanding the causes and implications can be an important part of your journey toward finding a solution.
Common Causes of Medical-Related Hair Loss
Many medical conditions and treatments can result in hair loss.
Some of the most common include:
Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy: These cancer treatments are notorious for causing hair loss as they target all rapidly dividing cells, including those in your hair follicles.
Alopecia Areata: This autoimmune disease results in hair loss in patches and, in some cases, can cause complete hair loss on the scalp or the entire body.
Telogen Effluvium: A temporary form of hair loss often associated with stress, surgery, weight loss, or a significant hormone change.
Androgenetic Alopecia: Also known as male or female pattern hair loss, this genetic condition affects both men and women.
Trichotillomania: An impulse-control disorder where individuals feel compelled to pull out their hair.
Thyroid Diseases: Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can lead to hair loss.
Scalp Infections or Inflammations: Conditions like ringworm or folliculitis can lead to hair loss.
