Most of us are familiar with the skin conditions eczema and psoriasis. But not everyone is aware that a skin condition can become a scalp related hair loss issue. It is basic logic to go see a dermatologist when suffering from eczema or psoriasis but did you know there are specialists available to you for skin condition related hair loss?
When a skin condition affects the scalp it creates a whole new level of stigmatization. Covering up affected areas of the skin can be difficult in warm climates but trying to cover up hair loss can be both traumatizing and extremely trying, especially for women. The good news is something can be done about it and it doesn’t involve an extensive hat collection.
Self-esteem is greatly affected when experiencing hair loss. But when a skin condition affects the scalp it can also cause scarring and flaking, which can add to the embarrassment for the person suffering from it. Just knowing that others are experiencing scalp related hair loss can be very reassuring and can become a positive coping mechanism. Both eczema and psoriasis are chronic which means they will clear up and then return. Finding a support system would be extremely beneficial for the patient.
