Prajakta (name changed) a 21-year-old student was suffering from severe hair loss for almost a year. A detailed analysis of her case with video microscopy suggested the condition was caused by trichotillomania the obsessive urge some people develop to pull out their own hair. This not only leads to hair loss but it also leads to social embarrassment because patients often become the butt of ridicule. Trichotillomania or the irresistible urge to pull out one’s own hair affects 4 out of every 100 people. But the condition can be cured with a holistic combination of homeopathic treatment and behavioural therapy.
