Other Causes Of Hair Loss 

Hair loss is often a particular symptom of many different diseases, although it can also occur with the stress of an illness.

The pattern of hair loss differs in most people and is unlike male pattern baldness.

Hair loss is often the first and only presentation of many diseases and usually, the majority of hair comes back when the disease has gone or is being adequately treated.

Diseases such as Addison’s disease, Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism, Iron Dieciencym Scarring, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Secondary Syphilis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Vitiligo and others are associated with hair loss.  

Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss that is due to chronic and excessive pulling on the air. It usually occurs in people who braid or knot their hair tightly.  

Trichotillomania involves the pulling out if healthy hair intentionally. It is a usually a temporary, personal habit that has no permanent consequence.

It can be a symptom of a serious emotional or psychiatric problem, mostly seen in children and adults.

It involves one pulling out individual strands of hair, usually from the scalp, although eyebrows, eyelashes and public hair can also be involves.

The hair is usually manipulated such as being wrapped around a finger in a ritualized type of way. 

Alopecia areata involves patches of baldness developing. This is usually in small circular areas on the scalp and it quite common, affecting 1 in 100 people in the US.

Experts belive it to be autoimmune, meaning the body’s cells (in this instance the pailla/bulb area) and antibodies attack themselves.     

This condition usually occurs in young adults and can occur in men and women equally though it is more common in men in Italy and Spain.

Some 80% of people with this type of alopecia have hair re-growth eventually, although many people have recurrent battles with this disease.   

There is a severe form of alopecia areata (alopecia totalis) which involves a total loss of scalp hair, sometimes resulting in a total loss of bodily hair (alopecia universalis).

This is a rare problem and approximately 33% of those affected grow back all their hair within a year, although like above, there can be recurrent battles with this disease.  

Similar to telogen effluvium alopecia, anagen effluvium (chemical damage) is a form of hair loss that which initially causes patchy losses of hair usually advancing to a total loss of in.

Instead of the hair follicle simply shutting down, this form of hair loss is due to chemicals killing the anagen hair and hair follicle.

An example of this type of hair loss is the medications, such as chemotherapy that are used to treat cancer.  

Since chemotherapy is a drug injected into the body to kill cancer cells, its also a poison that can kill the good and bad cells.

One of the side effects is killing the hair follicle. However, when the chemotherapy stops, the hair usually grows back after 6 months. 



Many other medications that are used to treat illness and diseases can also cause hair loss.

This is usually in a minority of patients, although the reasons for it remain unknown.

You should always ask your doctor before taking medications what the possible side effects are and equally, consult your doctor before deciding to discontinue a medication as the consequences of not taking a certain medication may be greater to hair loss in itself.
