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. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Unlikely: These symptoms can be interpreted many ways, but if leukemia were present (which is very improbable) the symptoms would not improve, but get progressively worse. Sounds as if you have been reading texts looking for a diagnosis and are learning that there is more to medical practice than is written down. See a good clinician. Good luck and get better soon. ...Read more

Itchy and numb skin, muscle spasms and hair loss. What does this sound like?

Itchy and numb skin, muscle spasms and hair loss. What does this sound like?

Neuropathy plus?: I'm not sure all three things go together. Abnormal skin sensations, such as 'numbness' or itchiness, can result from diseases of the peripheral nerves, and some of those also affect motor nerves and can cause weakness and muscle spasms. So perhaps you have such a disease, called 'neuropathy'. Hair loss doesn't usually go with that. See your doctor for a full evaluation. ...Read more
