Patches of Baldness? It Could Be this Type of Alopecia!

Find Out the Type of Alopecia the Bald Patches Might Be Indicating

Alopecia Areata is the most prominent kind of alopecia that causes hair fall. It happens if your immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in excessive shedding and even bald patches. Generally, people below 20 are most affected by this condition but it may occur to any individual irrespective of age and gender. The hair loss is reversible on its own and treatments are also available. Below is a list of different types of Alopecia Areata that have been diagnosed in people.

  • Alopecia Universalis (AU) - This kind of alopecia leads to complete hair loss from the body, including eyebrows and eyelashes.
  • Alopecia Totalis (AT) - Alopecia Tolalis causes shedding of hair from the scalp making one bald.
  • Alopecia Barbae - When Alopecia Areata occurs at the beard area making patches or wiping the entire area smooth, it is called Alopecia Barbae.
  • Scarring Alopecias (Cicatricial Alopecias) - This is the rarest form of Alopecia where one loses hair permanently.
  • Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) - Also called male or female pattern baldness, this type of alopecia causes excessive thinning of hair to the point that the scalp is almost visible. This is a progressive kind of hair loss that is most common in people with hereditary alopecia.
  • Traction Alopecia - This type of alopecia results from excessive pulling on the hair, which causes tension in the hair follicles. Primarily seen in women because of certain kind of hairstyles, it can lead to damage of hair shafts preventing re-growth of hair.
  • Telogen Effluvium - If more than normal amount of hair falls out then, it is called Telogen Effluvium. It is usually innocuous and the hair returns to its former glory after the phase has passed.
  • Anagen Effluvium - This type of hair loss is caused due to chemicals used to treat cancer. After the completion of the treatment, hair usually grows back to its normal state.

Hello, shampoo and oil helps in conditioning the scalp. They will not help you in controlling hair fall. Hair breakages can be lessened by shampoo and conditioner. Hair roots are situated inside the scalp. They get nutrition through blood. Eat food which is rich in minerals, protein and iron. Drink 3 lit of water/day. This will help you in settling hair fall. If it doesn't settle then consult trichologist.

No psoriasis is not dangerous to life in most cases. Rare cases of pustular and erythematous variety, where large area is infected and interferes with body's immune system and heat regulation can pose risk to life.

Baking Soda Baking soda is an effective treatment for blackheads as well as acne. It helps clear the skin of impurities such as debris and dirt. 1. Mix two teaspoons of baking soda with mineral water to make a paste. 2. Apply the paste generously on the affected skin area and massage gently. Allow it to dry for a few minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. 3. Repeat this remedy once or twice a week. My suggestion for your Facial Hairs is Homoeopathic treatment as it is safe nd free from any side effects.Please dont go for any laser or hormonal treatment as your problem is already due to hormonal imbalance.I want to knw the history of your problem,when nd how your facial hairs started increasing,about your Menstrual history nd what all medicines have you taken for this. Being a homoeopath I can gurantee you that your face will be hairfree within next 6-8 months as the process of removal of hairs is slow.

Top 4 Natural Ways to Erase Stretch Marks
Natural ways to remove stretch marks

Whether you have just had a baby or you've lost all the weight you'd gained in the past, stretch marks are problems which almost everyone, faces at some time or other. While there are numerous products in the market which claim to reduce stretch marks, there are also many natural ways to remove stretch marks.

4 natural commodities which can be used to reduce stretch marks and their ways are:

1. Potatoes: rubbing potato slices on the area which has stretch marks for a few minutes covers the area with starch. Once the starch is dried and washed with water, this can help reduce stretch marks.

2. Aloe vera: aloe vera is the foremost solution for almost all skin related problems that we face. Its healing properties cure skin problems, like stretch marks. All you need to do is rub aloe vera gel on the affected area every day for about fifteen minutes and washing off with warm water. Alternatively, mixing aloe vera gel with vitamin e and vitamin a oils and then rubbing that on the affected area is also known to be fruitful.

3. Castor oil: it is also used to a host of skin issues and is a sure shot cure. A little castor oil needs to be gently massaged on the affected area, in circular motion for about 10 minutes and then wrapping the area with a thin cloth. Apply some heat on the wrapped area for about half an hour for best results. Do this daily.

4. Hydrate: drink a lot of water and keep your skin hydrated. A well-hydrated skin is known to be free of all marks. When you drink at least ten glasses of water every day, your body gets regular detox which in turn gets rid of the stretch marks.

Atopic Dermatitis - An Itchy Inflammation Of The Skin

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Secunderabad
Atopic Dermatitis - An Itchy Inflammation Of The Skin

Especially common in children, but not entirely impossible in adults, Atopic Dermatitis is a type of eczema, a chronic condition that causes intensive itching and red rashes in and around areas of dry and sensitive skin. Atopic dermatitis has a tendency to flare and then subside periodically and is often accompanied by hay fever or asthma or other allergies. In more serious cases, clear, fluid-filled blisters are also formed.

Symptoms:

Signs and symptoms normally associated with atopic dermatitis may include:

  1. Itching, which may be severe at nocturnal periods of the day
  2. Dry or cracked, scaly skin
  3. Reddish brown patches in almost any area of the body
  4. Swollen and sensitive skin after scratching
  5. Small, raised blisters which may leak when scratched

Causes:

The exact causes of atopic dermatitis are unknown. It can, however, be related to any of the following factors:

  1. Dry and irritable skin
  2. Immune system dysfunction
  3. Gene variations which affect the skin’s barrier function
  4. Action of bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, on the sensitive areas of skin
  5. Environmental conditions

Complications:

If you have Atopic Dermatitis, you are likely to be troubled by the following complications:

  1. Chronic, itchy skin
  2. Increased risk of acquiring other skin diseases and viruses, such as the herpes simplex virus
  3. Asthma and hay fever
  4. Eye problems such as blepharitis and conjunctivitis
  5. Allergic contact dermatitis
  6. Sleep disorders
  7. Irritant hand dermatitis
  8. Behavioral problems such as attention deficit or hyperactivity disorders

Treatment and drugs:

If the problem still persists even after regular moisturising and other self-care steps, you may have to take medications and prescribe to certain drugs such as:

  1. Anti-itching and anti-inflammatory creams
  2. Anti-itching oral drugs
  3. Anti-inflammatory oral or injected drugs
  4. Calcineurin inhibitors that repair the skin
  5. Drugs to fight infection
  6. Wet dressings therapy
  7. Light therapy
  8. Stress treatment therapy

If excessive hair is stopping you from living and enjoying your life, consult a dermatologist who can help you with an effective treatment.
