Too little hair on the scalp or too much hair on the body is a psychological burden for many people affected by the issue.
Altered hair growth can, however, also be an indication of an underlying medical condition. Before any treatment is initiated, a clinical examination as well as a systemic clarification of the cause must be carried out. Blood tests and scalp biopsies are available for this purpose.
From a therapeutic perspective, both local and systemic therapies are available. The choice depends on the cause and the severity of the problem.
