Scalp Infection will cause hair loss

Do you know Scalp Infection will cause hair loss? An unhealthy scalp can cause inflammation in the hair follicles, making it difficult for hair to grow. In fact, a scalp infection can lead to hair loss.

There are different types of scalp infections, but the most common is tinea capitis. It is a type of fungal infection, also known as ringworm of the scalp.

The fungi can live on the dead tissue of the hair and spread easily. It may affect only parts of the scalp, or all of it. Areas that are infected often appear bald with small black dots.

It most often affects children and resolves by puberty. However, it can occur at any age. In a 2013 study published in the International Journal of Trichology, 210 out of 2,800 children seen at dermatology clinics had complaints of hair loss and scalp disorders. Among these 210 children, tinea capitis was the most common cause of hair loss (40.0%), followed by alopecia areata (26.2%) and telogen effluvium (17.6%).

Timely diagnosis and treatment can help treat this problem.
