Hair loss (alopecia)
Hair loss (alopecia) can occur when hair fails to grow at a normal rate or when hair is lost more quickly than it can grow back. It can result from a variety of medical conditions, including skin infections, hormonal diseases, and infestations with fleas or mites. Many causes of hair loss are treatable and if the hair follicle has not been permanently damaged or destroyed, the hair will grow back over time.
