Premature Baldness (Khalitya)

Baldness refers to a loss of hair, usually on the head.


Baldness may be due to certain serious diseases like acute fevers, myxodema (a syndrome cause by hypothyroidism), syphilis, influenza, anaemia, and great anxiety or nervous shock. If premature baldness is hereditary then not much can be done except delaying the falling of the hair for some years through proper medication. Sometimes eczema, psoriasis of the scalp leads to rapid baldness.

Root Causes

The administration of drugs indicated for premature graying of hair should help in the cases of baldness also, but recourse to medication has to be taken in the earlier stage. If all the hair has fallen out and the follicles have closed, nothing much can be done.
