The subject of women’s hair and scalp concerns is an emotive one, but my profession of Trichology is my absolute passion! I will discuss in detail various conditions that I diagnose and treat at Sussex Trichology with the aid of my assistant; we successfully treat most hair loss and scalp problems.
I find the most upsetting part of losing one’s hair is fear of the unknown and of feeling ‘out of control’ with the changes that can seem to deteriorate overnight.
There are many reasons for this age group for women to experience hair loss or a scalp condition, in most cases the age is irrelevant. The following case history details a condition that can affect anyone from the ages of puberty up.
Unfortunately, there are certain, medical practitioners who believe the menopause is the only reason. I may, for example, feel your current HRT should be another (I would request this from your doctor) or that a blood test appears prudent, or simply be able to diagnose your condition and discuss treatment.
