Are you suffering from Trichotillomania?
This is Marc du Brule, Clinic Director at Du Brule Hair Clinic and we regularly assist people that are dealing with hair loss due to Trichotillomania.
Trichotillomania, also known as trichotillosis or hair pulling disorder, is an impulse disorder characterized by the compulsive urge to pull out one’s hair, leading to noticeable hair loss and balding, distress, and social or functional impairment.
Trichotillomania is more common than most think. It is estimated that 1 in 50 people currently suffer from this affliction and we have many clients that are currently dealing with this issue.
What causes Trichotillomania? In general, there is no current consensus on the cause. However, most doctors believe that anxiety, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder are more frequently encountered in people with trichotillomania. Trichotillomania has a high overlap with post traumatic stress disorder and some cases of trichotillomania may be triggered by stress.
The effects of trichotilliomania can be devastating. Trichotillomania often results in permanent hair loss and the primary negative effect is a corresponding psychological effect of low self esteem, often associated with being shunned by peers and the fear of socializing due to appearance and negative attention. In addition, some individuals with trichotillomania may feel they are the only person with the problem due to low rates of reporting. This is not the case – you are not alone; in fact, this is a relatively common disorder.
