hi web em , i have eczema on my face i'm on treatment for it. my hair is falling out my hairdresser doesn't know why. can eczema be in my hair and can it cause my hair to be falling out?
Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
Dear Speak,

Any inflammation of the scalp - eczema, psoriasis, severe dandruff- can lead to hair loss. It is important to get your eczema treated early so you can minimize the hair loss. Also, it may be advisable to have a blood count and thyroid test. In the meantime, make sure your nutrition is optimized and you are taking a multivitamin with biotin.

I hope that helps
