Traction alopecia Alopecia can appear in many different ways depending on whats causing it. It can come on suddenly or gradually and affect just your scalp or your whole body. Some types of hair loss are temporary and others are permanent. Signs and symptoms of Alopecia may include:  Gradual thinning on top of head. This is the most common type of hair loss affecting both men and women as they age. In men hair often begins to recede from the forehead in a line that resembles the letter M. Women typically retain the hairline on the forehead but have a broadening of the part in their hair.  Circular or patchy bald spots. Some people experience smooth coin-sized bald spots. This type of hair loss usually affects just the scalp but it sometimes also occurs in beards or eyebrows. In some cases your skin may become itchy or painful before the hair falls out.  Sudden loosening of hair. A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss usually causes overall hair thinning and not bald patches.  Full-body hair loss. Some conditions and medical treatments such as chemotherapy for cancer can result in the loss of hair all over your body. The hair usually grows back.

 Patches of scaling that spread over the scalp.This is a sign of ringworm. It may be accompanied by broken hair redness swelling and at times oozing. When to see a doctor See your doctor if your child or you are distressed by alopecia and want to pursue treatment. Also talk to your doctor if you notice sudden or patchy hair loss or more than usual hair loss when combing or washing your or your childs hair. Sudden hair loss can signal an underlying medical condition that requires treatment. Causes People typically lose about 100 hairs a day. This usually doesnt cause noticeable thinning of scalp hair because new hair is growing in at the same time. Hair loss occurs when this cycle of hair growth and shedding is disrupted or when the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue. Alopecia is typically related to one or more of the following factors:  Family history heredity. The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. It usually occurs gradually with aging and in predictable patterns — a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning hair in women.
