Contact Dermatitis and Hair Loss
Can you please help me? I have a contact dermatitis and have been picking it- is the hair loss permanent or temporary?
Can you also recommend a good dermatolgist and endorcolgist in London? We have bupa but my gp is not good with hair problems.
Thank you . I am very impressed with the time you give others with this awful, life destroying conditon
Contact dermatitis usually is not related to hair loss. However, you seem to describe a condition of compulsive hair-pulling (called trichotillomania) and it may be secondary to your contact dermatitis. Hair loss from pulling is often permanent if it goes on for any length of time. Fortunately if you stop pulling at it, your hair may still grow back. People who pull at their hair often have some obsessive/compulsive elements in their personalities and may require medications to stop the process.
