The hair are present all around the body except the palms and the feet’s sole. According to the studies, it is found that the pores of hair present on the body of an ape are equal to that of, present on the body of the Homo sapiens. The hair are made up of dead keratin. Like everything else, they also require a huge care. But if the required care is not taken, then it may cause the problems that will lead to hair loss. One of the most common diseases of the scalp (enfermedades del cuero cabelludo) is Alopecia areata. It is a most common type of hair disease. In this disease, patches of hair are lost throughout the body, depending upon the type of alopecia.
It is found that this disease is not gender specific and is equally common in both the genders. This disease is caused when the immune system of the body itself attacks the points where the hair growth is initiated i.e. hair follicles. It happens mistakenly. It is found that this disease is more likely to be caused due to illness and stress. It can be seen that stress enforces the follicles to a phase known as resting phase. The hair diseases(enfermedades del cabello)and scalp diseases (enfermedades cuero cabelludo)are also caused due to the malnutrition.
The scalp skin diseases (cuero cabelludo enfermedades)are also caused due to many other diseases. One of the most common ones is the Thyroid disease. There are others too like anemia, protein deficiency, and low vitamin level. The treatment of the cancerous diseases, which are done through the chemotherapy, also leads to the hair fall. The diseases like lupus and the lichen planus also cause the hair fall. The hair loss may be permanent or the temporary one. It depends on the severity and the intensity of the condition.
