Thinning Hair Ireland
Thinning hair in women is becoming an increasingly common problem for woman in Ireland. While hair loss has always been associated with men, it is now more frequently seen now in women. Thinning hair can come on gradually and can change a woman's appearance and can lead to a lack of self-confidence and anxiety. Therefore, it is important to know the reasons for this hair loss and how to prevent it.


Causes of Thinning Hair in Women include:

Alopecia Ireland

Alopecia Areata
Although the precise reason of alopecia areata is not yet known, an autoimmune condition is thought to be the main reason. The immune system of the body incorrectly targets its own cells and tissues, including the hair follicles, in autoimmune illnesses, which causes hair loss. Given that alopecia areata tends to run in families, it is believed that hereditary factors may contribute to the development of the condition. Stress, viral infections, and environmental factors may also contribute to the development of alopecia areata, while more research is needed to completely understand the underlying causes of this disorder.

Alopecia Areata signs and symptoms:
Hair loss in small, rounded patches is Alopecia Areata's most obvious sign. Normally smooth, these patches can occasionally be a little red or irritated. It may also feel sensitive or itchy where the scalp or other parts of the body are affected. The nails may occasionally also be impacted, developing pitting (small dents) or white patches.
