Scalp Scarring

Scalp scarring, also known as cicatricial alopecia, refers to a group of hair loss conditions where permanent hair loss occurs due to scarring of the scalp. This scarring disrupts or destroys the hair follicles, preventing new hair growth in those areas.

Causes: Scalp scarring can arise from various factors including injuries (burns, lacerations), infections (fungal, bacterial), inflammatory skin diseases (folliculitis decalvans, lichen planopilaris), autoimmune conditions (lupus), and certain surgeries.

History: Scalp scarring can be a recent development or a long-standing issue depending on the cause. Examining the scar tissue and the overall health of the scalp can provide clues about the origin of the scarring.

Treatment Solutions: Unfortunately, there’s no cure for existing scalp scars. However, treatment options can focus on managing the underlying cause to prevent further scarring and explore ways to camouflage the hair loss. This might involve medications for infections or autoimmune conditions, scalp care routines, or hair transplantation techniques in suitable cases.
