Hair loss or alopecia is simply the loss of hair in a region where hair is desired.  This usually occurs on the head and sometimes the eyebrows or lashes. In reality, the emotional impact of hair loss is anything but simple.  This is especially true with women for whom loss of hair can cause low self-esteem. Treatment may involve a combination of over-the-counter medications or prescription treatments including topical treatments, injections, and oral medications.
