Fringe - All About Hair

This blog explores topics in 'Trichology' (the orthodox sciences of human hair). We welcome you either as an interested visitor or a prospective student seeking to study trichology to share your comments and experience. As the archives continue to accumulate, probably at some point they will become a useful reference for all. This hair loss forum may help you to grow hair too!


Sebo Psoriasis


This male patient presented with recent onset hair fall with itching. He also complained of boils over the scalp. On examination patient had superficial folliculitis of the scalp which is fairly common in gulf. The blue circle shows a folliculitis lesion as seen through hair scope. When it is confined to only certain regions, it could be considered a part of the spectrum of sebo-psoriasis.

Scalp Psoriasis


This patient with extensive frontal recession of pattern alopecia complained of recent onset hair loss from the vertex. On examination patient had scalp psoriasis. The hair scope examination showed characteristic follicular thinning of pattern alopecia but pictures 2 and 3 also showed characteristic scalp changes. This underlines the need to carefully look for scalp disorders even in extensive pattern alopecia.
