About Hair loss

Back to the top

Hair loss (alopecia) may be caused by aging, genetics, hormone changes or medication, and can affect both men and women. Hair loss may fall out of the scalp in patches, or may even affect the entire body. The most common type of hair loss, however, is known as androgenic alopecia (or male pattern baldness).

While baldness may be caused by a variety of factors (such as hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, hairstyles that pull at your hair, extreme stress, etc.) male pattern baldness is generally inherited genetically and is caused by excess androgens -- male sex hormones. Male pattern hair loss is diagnosed by the pattern its balding causes, which tends to be a receding hairline and thinning hair on the crown of the head.

No cure currently exists for male pattern baldness, but many treatments have become available. However, if you are losing your hair in patches, you are shedding a lot of hair, your hair is breaking, or if it is accompanied by redness, scaling, pus, or pain your hair loss may be due to a separate condition. Talk to your doctor for more information regarding the cause of your hair loss and to discuss the treatment options available to you.
