Scarring Alopecia Treatment in Portland

Portland Scarring Alopecia TreatmentScarring Alopecia is a type of hair loss in Portland that leads to scarred areas on the scalp skin that may prevent the hair from growing back. Types of scarring may be due to diseases such as Lupus, Lichen Planus (Lichen Planopilaris), Sarcoidosis, Fungal and Bacterial infections and skin cancer. A process known as trichotillomania may also cause scarring hair loss. This process is due to compulsive pulling of the hair or by pulling hair too tightly at the hairline, harsh treatments, products, rubber bands and clips.
