Trichotillomania Hair Loss – Men

Trichotillomania is a mental health problem in which the main symptom is a compulsion to pull out hair, resulting in noticeable hair loss. Individuals with this disorder usually pull out scalp hair through frequent twisting and tugging, but may also pull their eyebrows, eyelashes, or hair on other parts of their body. Trichotillomania often begins in childhood or adolescence. Some experts believe it may be a way of attracting attention or a response to stress or tension.
