Question
I had chicken pox on my scalp.Now that part of my scalp does not have hairs and it keeps on itching.Should I consult a doctor ?

Answer
Yes you should have your scalp examined by a professional.  The virus that causes chicken pox and herpes zoster can cause hair loss when lesions form on the scalp. There are several types of hair loss that may result from chicken pox. It is important to have your scalp examined and diagnosed to know what you may be dealing with.

Expertise

Female hair loss is my main focus. Women today are very susceptible to several types of hair loss including telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, and androgenetic alopecia. I can answer questions about the causes and types of female hair loss. I can share information about natural holistic remedies to improve female hair loss conditions.

Experience

My interest in female hair loss sprung from my own experience with extensive hair loss. Determined to grow my hair back, I diligently studied every piece of information I could find on the biology of hair growth. After successfully re-growing my hair with safe and effective natural products, I felt compelled to learn more and to share this information with other women. I am experienced in blending custom hair loss formulas. I am also experienced in writing about female hair loss issues.

My hair loss information has been included in The Truth about Womens Hair Loss by Spencer Kobren, Naturally Healthy Skin by Stephanie Tourles, Alternative Healing by Bill Gottleib and Natural Health Magazine. I am the author of several books on hair loss.
