Effluvium alopecia (Telogen/Anagen)-massive and extreme fallout of various unpatterned hair shafts of more than the normal 100 hairs per day;

including an anagen or a telogen bulb attached with it.

This fallout can be preceeded by a virus, an immune system challenge, sickness, death, poisoning, cancer cytotoxic, stressors new birth/expectant mother hood and more.

A systemic issue may cause a fallout that needs to be corrected or it may worsen with time. It’s important to evaluate the initial problem which contributed to the onset.

 

     

Acne Necrotica (scalp folliculitis)

Onset may begin from an impaired immune system or bacterial infection left uncontrolled or not fully treated.

Occurs from bacteria and needs to be controlled with a antibacterial topicals, shampoos and treatments.

It begins from the inside and may  be helped and controlled with antibiotics. See a physician immediately for immediate treatment.

If scratched and picked and left untreated, it can lead to a scarred scalp and loss of hair.

An Anti inflammatory will be needed as well for pain

      Alopecia Areata- a disease that may not be easily controlled and can advance to alopecia totalis

 

Dupa-Diffuse UnPatterned Alopecia  (diffusion or thinning of hair)-

Diffuse alopecia without pattern (DUPA) is a type of androgenetic alopecia with no defined fall pattern. This type of alopecia manifests capillary loss in all areas of the scalp, both in the upper area, as in the back and on the sides so it lacks a stable and permanent donor area.

In the hair loss process, the hairline is maintained, but there is a decrease in overall density throughout the head.

FFA

Frontal fibrosing alopecia is a form of scarring hair loss affecting the hair margin on the front of the scalp. This happens due to inflammation and destruction of the hair follicles. There may also be hair loss from the scalp near the ears and from the eyebrows. Sometimes hair loss can also occur from other parts of the body, but this is less common. FFA occurs mostly in white postmenopausal women but can occur in premenopausal women, men, and people of other ethnicities. Frontal fibrosing alopecia is thought to be a variant of another condition called lichen planopilaris.

What causes frontal fibrosing alopecia?

The cause of frontal fibrosing alopecia is unknown. We know that cells, called lymphocytes, that are part of the body’s immune system attack the hair follicles. It is not understood why it particularly affects the front of the scalp. It is thought that genetics, overactivity of the body’s immune system and, possibly, hormones play a role.

 

It may tend to feel lumpy with finely-raised bumps around, at or near the hairline.

It differs from traction alopecia due to the margin of hair that’s often missing from the frontal hairline.

this may lead to a scarred scalp and may or may not return

 

 Traction ALopecia-due to tightly-pulled tension styles over time, damaging the hair bulb, root and the follicle

 

Seborrhea

Seborrhea dermatitis-occuring where  the concentrated amount of soil glands reside, this is an condition that is accompanied by an overly acidic set of sebaceous glands.

It is also influenced by an imbalance of the thyroid’s ability to regulate Sebum production resulting in an over-production of oil on the skin, worsening with a highly-acidic diet.
