Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss that tends to happen over a period of time. Areas of hair fall out in large amounts, often in a specific area. This specific type of alopecia, though, occurs when the hair is pulled. This type of hair loss can happen in a variety of circumstances, and not all of them are easy to explain or to avoid.
Medical conditions can often cause hair loss. In these instances, the hair loss may be a side effect or a symptom of the medical condition. In other cases, it can come from the medications being taken to combat the condition. If you are suffering from hair loss, and you are unsure why it is occurring, it may be important to talk to your doctor about one of these medical conditions or others that could be behind the loss.
For many men and women, alopecia is a word they learn only when they talk to a doctor about their recent hair loss. It is possible that these individuals have long had this condition. Defined as areas of hair loss in which small, round patches of hair simply fall out, this condition can be alarming and worrisome when you first notice it. If you are experiencing this condition and wondering what it could mean to you and your health, consider the following.

If you are losing your hair and worried about it, understanding why it is happening and what it could do to your mental health can help you to get through the process.
