Problem: The cause of scarring alopecia is poorly understood, and the signs and symptoms are often missed or ignored. While the exact amount of hair loss can vary, we do know that early detection and diagnosis leads to quicker treatment to keep as much healthy hair as possible.

Risk Factors: Extended timeline between noticing the first signs of scarring hair loss (burning, tingling, itching, scales, tenderness, thinning hair, bald spots) and acknowledging there could be an issue, going to a dermatologist and receiving a diagnosis. Hair loss during that prolonged time is permanent and cannot be recovered.

Solution: Get an appointment with a dermatologist and have a scalp biopsy. This disease is a follicular emergency and timing is critical!
