Help My Hair Is Falling Out - What You Must Do First When You Experience Sudden Hair Loss


Visitors: 168

For many people hair loss is an unfortunate fact of life. The good news is that today there are many different hair loss treatment options available. However with great choice often comes great confusion and sometimes it is not always clear what hair loss treatment option is the right one, particularly if you are at the point of screaming “Help, my hair is falling out".

Unexpected sudden hair loss in particular brings with it the added emotional and mental stress that does little to help in choosing the appropriate hair loss treatment. But really the choice is clear. If you experience sudden hair loss beyond the normal 50-200 hairs per day, the first thing you must do is to consult your doctor.

At this stage it is most appropriate to think of your sudden hair loss as a medical condition, and as such, nothing is more important than finding out specifically what is causing the hair loss. Without knowing the cause selecting the appropriate treatment becomes very difficult and not very effective and can in fact actually make the condition worse. Once the correct cause of the sudden hair loss has been diagnosed, the correct hair loss treatment option usually becomes very clear.

Apart from simply giving yourself the best chance of correcting the sudden hair loss you're experiencing, a doctor will also be in the best position to determine if some other medical condition is causing your hair to fall out. Often times symptoms such as your hair falling out unexpectedly, are indicating some other medical condition that needs to be treated rather than treating the hair loss itself.

If tests such as blood tests are needed to be performed to exclude or confirm a condition that has hair loss as part of its profile, your doctor can order those tests immediately, saving you worrying time wondering about what is causing your hair to fall out. And if a particular medical condition is diagnosed, then your doctor will obviously be in the best position to help you treat the disease.

What must also be considered is the mental and emotional impact of suddenly losing excessive amounts of hair. If you elect to treat your hair loss yourself (which is certainly something that you can do with many people getting excellent results with natural or home remedies), while the healing is taking place you are largely on your own often wondering whether or not you have taken the right hair loss treatment option.

By having a doctor on board from the earliest stage you can eliminate a lot of the guesswork in relation to how you treat your hair loss. At the same time a large part of the mental and emotional worry about why you hear is falling out, and what is the best way to treat it, is removed.

How you treat your hair loss is of course up to you, and natural and alternative hair loss remedies can certainly play a big part in any hair loss treatment plan you devise. But, for the reasons stated above, the very first thing you must do when you begin to unexpectedly lose your hair is to go and see your doctor.
