Scarring Alopecia

Scarring alopecia is not a single problem, rather a group of disorders that may destroy the hair follicle. There are no certain causes that can define various kinds of scarring alopecias. However, inflammation in the upper part of the hair follicle, where sebaceous glands (oil glands) are located, is the most probable cause.Not only that, scarring alopecia replaces it with a scar tissue, that might cause long term hair loss as well .Scarring alopecia is also known as cicatricial  alopecia.

How is scarring alopecia different from normal hair fall?

  • Itching: Itching is experienced in the scalp often by the persons who are suffering from scarring alopecia.
  • Pain: Pain is also sometimes an associated sign of this problem.
  • Burning: Burning is the most common sign of scarring alopecia.
