Hair Loss (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

  • If you have hair loss, you may want to see a doctor to evaluate if there are any medical reasons for the hair loss and to evaluate if any therapies are available for you.


  • See your doctor if you are losing large amounts of hair every day and if you are not feeling well at the same time you are losing hair.


  • Most often hair loss occurs without other signs of illness.


  • If the following symptoms occur at the same time as hair loss, you may have a serious medical condition and you should see a doctor right away.


There is no reason to seek emergency medical care for hair loss.
