Appears Gray Hair At A Young Age?
In the afternoon I would like to ask, since grade 2 high school my eyesight has appeared gray, right, but the gray hair does not appear from the root of the hair but only in the middle of the hair, now I am 19 years old and I feel more and more gray hair, and I often feel sick head at the nape (head down). Could you please explain whether there is a disease? And if I want a check-up, what kind of specialist should I see? R nThank you …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Gray hair is not only experienced by the elderly. Gray hair can appear in young people (like you) due to various factors, including genetics (congenital), albinism, vitiligo, lack of certain nutritional intake (especially vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin B12), thyroid gland disorders, and so. It could also be, the growth of gray hair appears faster due to smoking, alcohol consumption, excessive hair modification, or also due to the side effects of radiotherapy.
Gray hair shouldn't necessarily cause you to experience frequent headaches. The headaches that you feel may occur due to abnormalities in your own head (primary headache), for example migraines, tension headaches, or cluster headaches. It could also occur because of other causes (secondary headaches), such as hypertension, high cholesterol, head injuries, brain tumors, sinusitis, viral or bacterial infections, stress, hormonal fluctuations, and so on.
You should check your complaint directly with a doctor for further treatment. If necessary, your doctor may refer you to a dermatologist to get the best treatment for gray hair on your head, or also to a neurologist for further evaluation regarding with your headache.
At this time, you can do the following steps:
Do not pull out the gray hair that appears Diligently wash your hair to maintain cleanliness and strength Avoid excessive hair modification Protect your hair from excessive sun exposure Avoid using hair dyes that contain harmful chemicals. Sleep regularly Eat a balanced nutritious diet Stay away from smoking and alcohol. , take pain relievers (for example paracetamol) so that your headaches get better. Hope it helps.
