8 Years Of Severe Hair Loss To Thinning?
Hello Putri Ramayanti Rian Junior,
Hair loss can occur in all parts of your body hair not only on the head. Factors that influence it include:
Hereditary (heredity) Changes in body hormone levels (for example during pregnancy, menopause) Side effects of treatment (eg chemotherapy) Certain illnesses suffered (eg fungal infections of the scalp, thyroid gland disorders) Risk factors such as aging, psychological stress, weight loss drastically, it can also increase hair loss. Before you can determine the appropriate treatment for hair loss, you need to find out the causes and risk factors of your hair loss. Some forms of hair loss are as follows:
Thinning hair from the top of the head Some bald areas on the head Many strands of hair are loose when combing or left in a pillowcase when you wake up (> 100 strands / day) Hair loss throughout the entire body including armpits, pubic hair Anamnesis history of complaints , physical examination (pull test), and a complete supporting examination need to be done to establish the diagnosis of the cause of hair loss. Laboratory blood tests to check thyroid function, light microscopy, and scalp biopsy may be needed for certain cases.
Various treatments can be given to restore hair growth in bald areas or reduce hair loss. Hereditary baldness is usually treated with drugs such as minoxidil, finasteride, oral hormonal contraception, spironolactone given by the doctor according to the needs and conditions of the patient. This treatment is not instantaneous, having to wait a few months before significant results can be seen. Permanent baldness due to hair loss can also be overcome by hair transplantation. This procedure is an invasive procedure that requires more cost and pain.
Some things that can be used to cover baldness of hair are the use of wigs, scarves, hats, hair styling, and also cosmetics to cover bald areas of the head. You can also try various natural remedies to help reduce hair loss. Hair loss problems you can consult further with a dermatologist. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
