Hair Loss (Definition)

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.

Hair loss & thyroid: Those symptoms might suggest a thyroid problem, and further evaluation is necessary. If you have not already seen one, an endocrinologist should be your next stop.

Separate problems.: The real name for "dandruff" is seborrheic dermatitis. Effective otc shampoos all contain either tar, salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, or a combination of them, so look for those ingredients. Dandruff does not cause hair loss, so that is a separate issue, with many possible causes. Your dermatologist will have to run some tests to determine the cause.

My doctor says my thyroid levels are fine but I still have brittle breaking nails, hair loss [eye brows] and hair not growing (body hair), and inner?

My doctor says my thyroid levels are fine but I still have brittle breaking nails, hair loss [eye brows] and hair not growing (body hair), and inner?

Other causes: Agree with dr. Villaplana. You might have to live with normal thyroid level for awhile to see the effects. However, if the symptoms are still there despite normal thyroid hormone level, then it's probably something else that is causing the symptoms and not the low thyroid anymore.

What types of injections help with nerve pain and do they cause hair loss? Nerve pain in head and back of neck.

What types of injections help with nerve pain and do they cause hair loss? Nerve pain in head and back of neck.

Steroids can do that: You need to discuss this possibility w/ the doctor who'd do the procedures. Sometimes you need to make difficult choices and weighing the pros and cons of treatments is one. If the pain can be managed in other ways - hypnosis, meditation, acupuncture, etc. Or just tolerated is up to you. Not everyone has hair loss and it's not always permanent.

Hair and eyebrows have been thinning for months after beginning college. Clear thyroid tests (TSH, T3, (liothyronine) T4, Ferritin I think) and other bloodwork. Not sure what other possibilities? Once had thick pretty hair, scared I will go bald?

Hair loss: I think you should see a hair specialist - have your doctor refer you. There must be a condition that is affecting your hair, and almost certainly the cause of your hair loss will be found and treated. Please let me know how things develop.

Hello I have itchy eyebrows which is resulting in hair loss...How can I treat it?

Fungus?: Seborrhea / infection with pityrosporum can do this. If an dandruff shampoo isn't working, a visit to your physician is in order -- ketoconazole or any of several other rx's is good if it's a fungus, or it may be something else. Best wishes.

Dermovate: Is a glucocorticoid (steroid) used in the topical management of corticosteroid sensitive dermatoses such as psoriasis, lichen planus, discoid lupus erythematosus, and other conditions which do not respond satisfactorily to less-active steroids. Placing it on your eyebrows may cause inadvertent movement to the ocular surface which could prove to be harmful to the ocular surface.
