Hair Loss

There are several different types of hair loss: male-pattern baldness, female-pattern baldness, scalp disease hair loss, and hormone-related temporary hair loss. For 80 million men and women in the United States, hair loss is caused by genetic and hereditary factors. But other factors can cause balding, too. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause hormonal changes that lead to temporary loss of hair, while scalp diseases like ringworm or alopecia areata can cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. There are medications on the market that can reverse hair loss and promote hair regrowth. Visit our drug page to find the right hair loss drug for you.
