Thyroid Hair Loss And Itching

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.

I have a dry scalp which itches severe after washing hair. I have hair loss too. I'm planning to use 5% Minoxidil. Can I use Tgel and minox together?

Telogen effluvium.: That description sounds like telogen effluvium. In this, hair follicles in specific locations get stunned, if you will, by some sort of stressor - physical (such as a fracture), emotional, mental, nutritional, surgical. The follicles seem to eject their hairs in these areas, creating nearly circular bald patches. Takes a really long time, but the hairs do eventually return. ...Read more
