Over the past 2-3 weeks I have playing with the left side of my hair above my ear. I didn’t know I was pulling it out the hairs at a time. Now after taking a closer look I see that I have a lot less hair there. My question is will the hair grow back? I take propecia and don’t want my hair to look like this.
If the recent hair pulling event only lasted a short time the hairs should grow back. You must be careful if the pulling out of the hair continues repeatedly in the same area it could become permanent. There is medical condition called Trichotillomania which involves chronic pulling out of hair. I am not a Psychiatrist or making any diagnosis, just offering something you may want to learn more about. Posted by Jeffrey S. Epstein, MD, FACS
