Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common condition which may be a consequence of natural aging, a side effect of medication, or a manifestation of a health disorder. Hair loss may be temporary or permanent, depending on its cause. Some causes of hair loss include:

  • Male pattern baldness
  • Fungal infections of the scalp
  • Severe infections or high fevers
  • Poor nutrition
  • Certain medications
  • Traumatic stress
  • Thyroid or pituitary disorders
  • Certain skin disorders, such as eczema or psoriasis
  • Autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, PCOS, or alopecia areata
  • Telogen effluvium, in which too many hair follicles remain in a resting state

Your provider at AllPhases Dermatology will tailor treatment to you, which depends on the cause of hair loss as determined by physical exams and lab work. Potential treatments include:

  • Over-the-counter medications such as Rogaine and Minoxidil
  • In-office scalp injections
  • Anti-fungal medications
  • Nutrition recommendations
