Alopecia areata, as a rule, is rarely associated with any other external or internal medical problems. Most often these bald areas regrow their hair spontaneously. Intralesional cortisone is helpful to cure this disorder. ...Read more

I have a birth mark on the back of my head, but my hair covers it. If I were to get it removed, will I have a bald spot?

I have a birth mark on the back of my head, but my hair covers it. If I were to get it removed, will I have a bald spot?

Yes, a small one...: About the width of the scar. When a lesion is removed, the surgery approximates the skin margins together so that it heals promptly, but the scar itself will not have hair follicles. Usually hair around it grows and covers the scar, so it is not noticeable unless one's head is shaved. If there is a concern about the birth mark and skin cancer, your life is most important. ...Read more

I have been experiencing hair loss. And because of that, I now have a bald spot on my crown area. Its been there for 6 years. Please help.

Find the cause.: Others may tell you that this is something called alopecia areata, but that usually does not last 6 years.

I am 26 and was born with a bald spot on the left side of my head I can't ever wear my hair up why are people born w this?

Unknown: The origin of these defects are poorly understood. What you describe sounds like focal temporal alopecia, where there are often tiny fuzz like hairs at the site. Other forms include a scar like base, or a skin nevus. There are no easy treatments. Plastic surgeons can place a skin expander in the area, and come back months later & remove the spot & cover it with the expanded normal scalp. ...Read more

Should I worry about my 2 yr old pulling her hair out as she lays down for her nap? Bald spot forming in back. Spoke to ped didn't seem concerned

Trichotillomania: Trichotillomania is no more worrisome, imo, than any other bad habit, except that others can see the evidence. The hair will grow back, but you want to gently break this habit before it gets entrenched. You might consider cutting her hair short enough that she can't pull it, or braiding it (not too tightly). And perhaps get her a stuffed animal that she can pull at instead, as a distraction. ...Read more
