Skin & Hair Problems

Attention ladies! 

Are you tired of dealing with skin and hair problems that won’t go away? Don’t ignore them any longer! 

Your skin and hair are your crowning glory and should be treated with the utmost care. From Psoriasis to pesky moles, we’ve rounded up some of the most common issues women face. 

Common women hair problems

Female pattern baldness (FPB)

Female pattern baldness (FPB) is women’s most common cause of hair loss. It affects up to 30 million women in the United States. FPB is also known as androgenic alopecia.

Symptoms of FPB include:

  • Thinning of the hair on the scalp.
  • Gradual loss of hair density.
  • Widening of the part line.

The hair loss may be diffuse or localized to specific areas of the scalp. There may also be changes in hair texture, such as increased fragility or coarseness.

Treatment for FPB is typical with medications that block the effects of hormones or promote hair growth. These include minoxidil (Rogaine), finasteride (Propecia), spironolactone (Aldactone), and oral contraceptives. In certain cases, surgery may be advised to correct the underlying cause of FPB.

Ringworm of the scalp (tinea capitis)

Tinea capitis, called ringworm of the scalp, is a fungal infection commonly affecting children. The fungus that causes tinea capitis thrives in warm, moist environments, such as locker rooms and swimming pools.

Symptoms of tinea capitis include itching, scaling, and bald patches on the scalp. If left untreated, tinea capitis can lead to permanent hair loss. 

Treatment for tinea capitis typically involves oral antifungal medications. In severe cases, oral steroids may also be prescribed to help reduce inflammation.

Common women skin problems

Atopic dermatitis (eczema)

Atopic dermatitis, commonly termed eczema, is a chronic skin condition that makes the skin itchy, dry and cracked. The actual cause of atopic dermatitis is not known, but it is said to be due to genetic and environmental factors. Atopic dermatitis is more common in people who have a family history of the condition. People with atopic dermatitis are also more likely to have other allergies, such as hay fever and asthma.

A common symptom of atopic dermatitis is itching. It can be mild or severe and may come and go. Other symptoms include:

  • Dry skin
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Cracking and bleeding. 

The symptoms of atopic dermatitis often appear in flares (periods when the symptoms are worse) followed by periods of remission (when the symptoms improve or go away completely).

There is no given cure for atopic dermatitis, but there are treatments that can help to control the symptoms. Treatment options include topical corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, antimicrobials, light therapy, and wet wraps. Some people with atopic dermatitis may also benefit from taking oral antihistamines or using moisturizers regularly.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis causes skin cells to grow rapidly, resulting in thick, scaly patches on the skin. It can be debilitating, causing immense physical and emotional pain. While there is no cure for Psoriasis, treatments are available that can help control the symptoms and improve the quality of life.

Melanoma

Melanoma is a very serious type of skin cancer. It can grow and spread quickly, so it’s important to catch it early. Melanoma usually starts as a new mole or a change in an existing mole. It can occur anywhere but will most likely develop on your face, neck, chest, back, or legs.

Symptoms of melanoma include:

– A mole that changes shape, color, or size

-A mole that bleeds or oozes

-A sore that doesn’t heal

Melanoma can be cured if it’s caught early. But if it’s not treated, it can spread to other parts of your body and be fatal.

You can lower your risk of melanoma by staying out of direct sunlight and using sunscreen when you are in the sun. Be sure to check your skin regularly for new moles or changes in existing moles.

Moles

Moles are common skin growth that can occur in both men and women. While most moles are harmless, some can become cancerous. Knowing the difference between a harmless mole and a cancerous one is important.

There are two main types of moles: 

Congenital moles

Acquired moles

Congenital moles are present at birth, but acquired moles develop later in life. The vast majority of moles (approximately 85%) are acquired.

Most people have 10-40 moles, with the average person having about 20. Moles can vary in color from pink to dark brown or black. Some moles may be flat, while others may be raised above the skin’s surface.

Seborrheic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis causes scaly, itchy patches on your skin. It’s common in adults and often affects the scalp, face, chest, and back. While it’s not usually serious, seborrheic dermatitis can be uncomfortable and difficult to manage.

Seborrheic dermatitis has many potential causes, including genetics, allergies, stress, and harsh weather. It can also be triggered by certain medical conditions, such as Psoriasis, Parkinson’s disease, or HIV/AIDS. Treatment typically involves using medicated shampoos or creams to control the symptoms. In severe cases, oral medications may be necessary.

Alopecia areata

Alopecia areata causes hair loss on the scalp. It can affect both men and women and can be caused by various factors, including stress, medical conditions, and an autoimmune reaction. There is no particular cure for alopecia areata, and treatments can help improve the appearance of the scalp and encourage new hair growth.
