One of the factors behind hair loss can be infections. These generally look like dandruff and many people are unable to judge the actual problem. These can cause hair loss in different patterns and can cause pustules on the scalp as well. We shall look into some of these infections in detail in the following lines.
It is a condition in which hair follicles are inflamed. The condition is general caused by bacteria though there are certain non-infectious types as well that are caused by oil and greasiness of scalp. The appearance is similar to acne with small rings surrounding the opening of hair follicle. The condition can eventually lead to hair loss in patches.
It is a very common condition which can affect various parts of the body. It can be triggered by a number of factors including stress, hormonal imbalance and head injury amongst others. There is also a genetic connection to seborrheic dermatitis and it is more prevalent in Caucasians. It causes oily and inflamed skin which may hurt on contact.
It is a fungal infection with nothing to do with ringworms. It can take place at any part of the body and when in scalp, it causes hair loss in patches. Affected areas are inflamed itchy and red. Hair can easily break due to ringworm as they become brittle and dry. The infection has a number of variations and while some go away on their own, other variations need medications to be treated.
These are small worm-like creatures that reside in the hair follicles and skin and eat dead skin and oil produced by the scalp. Against popular opinion, these actually do not cause hair loss but can cause irritation to the skin. These are especially a problem in eyelashes.
It is a condition in which fungus infects hair fibers. The obvious indicator of Piedra is formation of hard nodules on hair. The condition is further divided into black piedra and white piedra, based on the colors of nodules formed on the hair. The former is general more prevalent in tropical areas whereas the latter is found more commonly in certain parts of United States and Europe. The treatment is generally done by shaving the affected areas of the scalp and applying medicated creams. Piedra can cause hair loss not only on the scalp but also on other parts of the body.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
