We lose hair naturally, every day, but don’t usually notice it because the body generally replaces hair at the rate at which it’s lost. There are many other types of hair loss, however, both on the scalp and the body, which may be temporary or permanent.
Hair loss can occur at any age, in males and females, and can have many different causes including underlying medical conditions. If you’re concerned about hair loss, or see unusual hair loss in your child, contact your dermatologist who can diagnose and treat the conditions that lead to this problem.
