    • About Hair Loss

      Hair loss, medically known as alopecia, can affect just the scalp or the entire body. It may be temporary or permanent and can result from heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or aging. The most common form of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, known as male-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness. This type of hair loss is typically permanent and can manifest as a receding hairline and bald spots in men or thinning hair along the crown of the scalp in women.

      Factors that can lead to hair loss include:

      ● Genetic Predisposition: Family history plays a significant role, particularly in androgenetic alopecia.
      ● Hormonal Changes: Such changes can occur due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid problems.
      ● Medical Conditions: Alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease, scalp infections like ringworm, and trichotillomania (a hair-pulling disorder) are notable examples.
      ● Medications and Supplements: Drugs used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart issues, and high blood pressure can cause hair loss.
      ● Severe Stress: Physical or emotional shock can trigger noticeable hair shedding.
      ● Hairstyling and Treatments: Tight hairstyles, hot-oil treatments, and the use of harsh chemicals can contribute to hair loss.

      Understanding the underlying cause of hair loss is crucial for determining the appropriate treatment or management strategy.

    • Symptoms

      The symptoms of hair loss can vary widely depending on the underlying cause, but here are some general signs to watch for:

      ● Gradual Thinning on Top of the Head: This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both sexes but is most common in men. Women may notice a broadening of the part in their hair, while men may see a receding hairline and bald spots.
      ● Circular or Patchy Bald Spots: Some individuals may experience smooth, coin-sized bald spots, which can occur on the scalp, and sometimes the beard or eyebrows. The skin may feel itchy or painful before the hair falls out.
      ● Sudden Loosening of Hair: This can occur after a physical or emotional shock where handfuls of hair may come out when combing, washing, or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss is typically temporary.
      ● Full-Body Hair Loss: Some medical treatments, like for cancer, can cause complete hair loss across the body. The hair typically grows back after the treatment ends.
      ● Patches of Scaling that Spread Over the Scalp: This symptom may suggest ringworm and can be accompanied by broken hair, redness, swelling, and at times, oozing.

      These symptoms can signal different types of hair loss and might require consultation with a healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment. If you experience any of these symptoms, especially sudden or patchy hair loss, it is important to seek medical advice to ensure proper care and management.

    • Diagnosis

      Diagnosing hair loss typically involves a thorough examination and evaluation by a medical expert, usually a dermatologist. Here’s how the process generally unfolds:

      ● Medical and Family History: The doctor will ask about your personal and family medical history. This includes questions about the nature of your hair loss, its pattern, and timing, as well as any other health problems, medications, and diet.
      ● Physical Examination: The dermatologist will examine your scalp to look for signs of hair loss, the pattern of hair loss, and any associated skin problems or scalp infections.
      ● Hair Pull Test: A simple and common test where the doctor gently pulls on a small portion of hair (about 40 strands) to determine the shedding process and the stage of hair loss.
      ● Scalp Biopsy: If the cause of hair loss is unclear, a small piece of scalp skin may be removed and examined under a microscope to help identify the type of hair loss or detect infections.
      ● Blood Tests: These can help uncover medical conditions related to hair loss, such as thyroid disease, autoimmune diseases, and nutritional deficiencies.
      ● Dermoscopy: A handheld dermatoscope can be used to look at the scalp up close to examine hair follicles and the scalp surface, which can be useful in diagnosing conditions like alopecia areata or scalp diseases.

      By using these methods, medical professionals can diagnose the specific type of hair loss and its causes, allowing for more targeted and effective treatments.

    • Treatments

      Prescription medications for hair loss can significantly aid in managing and potentially reversing this condition. Here’s how some of our prescription medications can help:

      Finasteride 1mg Tablets:

      • Primary Use: Treats male pattern baldness at the crown and in the middle of the scalp.
      • Active Ingredient: Finasteride works by blocking the body’s production of a male hormone in the scalp that stops hair growth.
      • Effectiveness: It is known to slow down hair loss and could stimulate new hair growth.
      • Usage: It is a prescription medication taken orally, typically once a day.
      • Key Consideration: Continual use is necessary to maintain benefits; stopping the medication can result in the return of hair loss.


      Propecia 1mg (28 Tablets):

      • Primary Use: Also targets male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area.
      • Active Ingredient: Contains finasteride, like the generic version, and operates similarly by preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is involved in the development of baldness.
      • Effectiveness: It helps in reducing hair loss on the top of the head and on the mid-scalp area.
        Usage: Propecia is taken orally and requires a doctor’s prescription.
      • Key Consideration: Regular intake is crucial, and benefits are only maintained as long as the drug is taken.

      Both products are effective primarily for male pattern baldness and require a prescription from a healthcare provider. They are not suitable for everyone and may have side effects, including sexual side effects.

    • Prevention Strategies

      To help prevent hair loss, here are some effective strategies:

      ● Reduce Stress: Techniques like meditation, yoga, and ensuring sufficient sleep can help lower stress levels, which may prevent hair loss.
      ● Maintain a Healthy Diet: Eating foods rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals supports hair health.
      ● Scalp Care: Regular scalp massages increase blood flow to the scalp, promoting hair growth. Using gentle hair care products and avoiding harsh treatments and styles that pull the hair tight can also be beneficial.
      ● Over-the-Counter Treatments: Products containing minoxidil (Rogaine) can be applied to the scalp to stimulate hair growth.

      These steps can support overall hair health and mitigate hair loss. For more detailed guidance and treatment options, consulting a healthcare provider is recommended.
