Hair loss can be a nightmare in disguise and the sight of losing locks of hair in the comb, pillow, towel and down the drain can be extremely depressing. Losing hair is a natural process and on an average we lose around hundred strands per day, which we would hardly notice. Anything above this count is when we realise that we are experiencing hair fall issues. The root cause of hair fall is many and varies from person to person. One such serious disorder that causes hair loss is Cicatricial Alopecia that affects one in every hundred people. Hence you should know the reason behind your hair loss with Cicatricial Alopecia treatment.
Cicatricial Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder where your own immune system attacks the hair follicles assuming it to be foreign bodies. The real cause of this is unclear yet researchers believe that it could be an aftermath of having a serious burn, cut or injury, where initially the immune system reacts to it but then later targets the hair follicles too. It leads to tissue scarring under the skin and hence the name Scarring Alopecia. The scarring of the tissue and dead hair follicles lead to permanent hair loss and bald patches making it necessary to consult a well experienced trichologist who can guide you in the right track. Oral medications that possess anti-inflammatory properties would be suggested for those who suffer from Cicatricial Alopecia due to lymphocytes. On the other hand if it is due to neutrophils, your doctor would suggest both topical antibiotics and oral medications.
You can also opt for surgical hair transplantation process to restore your lost hair; however this should be done by an expert trichologist. Thus choosing the right trichologist is the key factor in finding a solution to your hair problems.
