Hair loss fear is very common in men. Having anxiety due to hair loss or fearing that you will lose your hair can trigger stress and depression. It is best to control your anxiety of losing your hair.
On average, a healthy individual can lose up to 150 hair strands per day. If you notice:
- Balding spots,
- More hair in the shower, tub, brush, comb,
- Hair loss on your body,
consult with your doctor before arriving at any conclusions. Only a specialist can tell the reasons for your hair loss. Remember that finding out the underlying causes for your hair loss is the first step to treating it.
Your hair loss might be temporary, and could perhaps be treated by simple medications.
It is also important to note that anxiety, fear, and stress are not good if severe, if excessive – they can worsen any conditions. Knowing that fear does not help, one can rather focus on the future, and the treatment of their disease, and hair loss in this case.
Genetics and diet are very important. You cannot change your genes but you can have a balanced and healthy diet.
Hair loss fear goes by the name peladophobia. It often occurs due to social anxiety. We assume that the society has expectations from us. To a certain extent, this is true. However, every life is important, and we need to learn to love ourselves. If you think you have peladophobia, it would be great to seek psychological or even psychiatric help. After finding out if you really have excessive hair loss, and if you do, the causes for it, learn about the treatments. If you are not suitable for any available treatments, and your fear and anxiety resume, try to take comfort, and talk to an expert. You are not the only one suffering from this phobia.
