Medically, hair loss is also known as Alopecia or baldness. This mostly occurs on the scalp, although hair loss in other parts of the body can also be seen. Usually, the hair loss that most men go through on the head is known as male pattern balding. This hair thinning condition can be hereditary, or even caused due to stress, hormones and other skin conditions.
HOW IS BALDNESS DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis is based on the appearance and pattern of hair loss. A skin biopsy, blood tests, or other procedures may be needed to diagnose other disorders that cause hair loss. The dermatologist will examine the hair and analyze the situation for further treatment.
HOW IS BALDNESS TREATED?
Treatments include finasteride, dutasteride and minoxidil. Ayurvedic and homeopathic medicines also have proven results in treating baldness. Hair transplantation is carried out to remove baldness.
