Itchy Head And Hair Falling Out

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

Maybe infectious: Or maybe hormonal. Abnormal hair loss may be related to a scalp infection (fungal or alopecia or dry scalp seborrheic keratosis) or hormonal effect (high thyroid, low sex hormones, etc.). Please get yourself to a physician or healthcare professional to diagnose and treat properly. I doubt this problem will go away nor will it improve on its own. ...Read more
Another female on here said her scalp was itchy and hair falling out. Can women also get male pattern baldness and why?

Hi, I am a female (22) with thin hair and a Y-shaped bald pattern on the crown. The hair just splits at the crown, what to do? Dry, little itchy scalp
TurnALossIntoAGain: At 22 years you have a good chance to beat this but you need to see a hair specialist for analysis of your hair and hair follicles, plus some other medical stuff, ASAP. You're shedding more than the usual 100-150 hairs a day. I assume by "Y" pattern you meant a "V, " which is thinning on each temple area, called "male pattern, " for obvious reason. Lotsa causes, lotsa possible cures. See a hair doc! ...Read more
