Not Trick or Treat….. Trichodynia!
Tricho, what? You may ask. Trichodynia is a condition where one may experience burning and pain on the scalp. Hair loss may also be associated with the pain. It is a condition that is currently being studied because current researchers have not come to an agreement on the cause of the condition. Some researchers feel that the condition is psychosomatic and that when an individual has increased stress or anxiety they may get trichodynia. Other researchers feel that there is a true medical explanation beyond a psychological reason for trichodynia. Whatever the cause, if you are experiencing hair loss and pain and burning on the scalp then you may have trichodynia and should seek the help of a medical professional to get some relief.
