Care for Your Hair, Scalp and Nails

The hair, scalp and nails of our body are areas that we don’t really pay attention to as often as needed until an issue comes up. Generally, you will know that you have good health overall if these parts of your body look good. Any change that happens to the nails such as thickening or discoloration can be a sign of health problems. If there is a sudden change that you notice to your hair, scalp and nails, be sure to call your healthcare provider immediately for an evaluation. Our team at Advanced Dermatology is experienced in diagnosing and treating the conditions that affect the scalp, hair and nails.

Hair and Scalp Treatment

The treatment that you can get for your hair and scalp will depend on the severity of your condition and the diagnosis of the healthcare professional. A dermatologist can perform a biopsy of your scalp or even draw blood to find out your condition. The options for treatment will depend on accurate diagnosis by a board-certified dermatologist. There are some cases where hair loss stops even without any treatment or can also be permanent.

What Causes Conditions of the Hair and Scalp

Loss of hair can range in its severity from losing hair slowly to a more severe form which is known as Alopecia Areata. This type of condition can be identified by a person’s sudden loss of hair with one or more bald patches. The exact cause for this condition is not known, but it is thought to be an autoimmune function. Common among children, Alopecia can also affect adults and even healthy individuals.

Scarring Alopecia is a unique and rare type of condition which destroys the follicles of the hair. It would then replace this with scar tissue which leads to loss of hair permanently. There are some cases wherein the hair loss of a person is slow and doesn’t come with symptoms while others can experience rapid hair loss.

The loss of hair on a person suffering from this condition can be in patches and may be accompanied by redness of the scalp, scaling and pustules.
