“I tend to see hair loss in combination with rashes. I see it in combination with psoriasis, with eczema, or just dandruff, and it really is because of the inflammation around the follicles.” [2:33]
“An example of an autoimmune form of hair loss could be someone who has lupus. And so the inflammation again, that swarms around the hair follicles and the organs, it can cause havoc on the follicle and cause the hair to fall out and so the treatment for them would be to do all that we can to stop the inflammation very quickly.” [5:22]Links
