Scalp infection and hair loss
We know many reasons why our hair may not be growing as we would want it to, but one very particular problem is often overlooked. Worse yet, it can affect adults and children of any gender or age and the effects on your hair may be devastating. The problem may actually be a scalp infection. Not only can these infections wreak havoc on your hair, they are difficult to diagnose and to treat. Three major scalp infections can mess with our hair.
Ringworm can cause scalp infection and hair loss
When you have ringworm, it means that your scalp has a fungal infection. It is common among young children and contagious as well. But do not make the mistake of assuming that only children may have problems, the fungus does not discriminate. Even worse, the problem is not limited to the scalp either; any part of the body may be affected because ringworm affects hair follicles and hair shafts. After a topical or oral antifungal medication, ringworm can be cured. While your hair is likely to come back after the fungal infection is taken care of, it might take quite a while.
Alopecia Areata can cause scalp infection and hair loss
Like ringworm, Alopecia Areata can affect all parts of the body that have hair follicles. It is an autoimmune disease. This means that hair loss results from the body attacking itself, thinking it is somehow fending off an intruder. It often leads to sudden hair loss and there may not be signs of scaling, broken hair, or inflammation usually associated with an infection. With Alopecia Areata, it is not uncommon to lose hair overnight in oval or round patches. Worse yet, there is no current treatment for Alopecia Areata and it is a very aggressive disease. The only positive is that because it is an autoimmune disease, it often goes back into remission (meaning the symptoms subside) during which time you can have your hair grow back.
Folliculitis can cause scalp infection and hair loss
With folliculitis, the hair follicles become inflamed. If the inflammation is bad enough, you will notice that you start losing your hair, and it could even destroy the hair follicles permanently. That means that the hair will never grow back. Folliculitis comes in different forms, both infectious and non-infectious. Depending on the severity, it can be treated with topical ointments (for minor infections) or an oral antibiotic (for more serious or severe infections).
