The pictures below contain links to information about the conditions that can affect the scalp in adults. Hair loss is a concern mostly for men, but it can affect women as well. Alopecia areata is a condition that is caused by a person's immune system attacking his or her own hair follicles, causing hair loss. Women are also susceptible to female pattern balding, but it typically takes place after menopause and is not as severe, typically, as it is in men. Seborrheic dermatitis, commonly known as dandruff, is very common, and it is due to excess skin cells that shed from the scalp. Sometimes, cysts grow from the scalp that contain skin debris, which are called pilar cysts. These cysts may need to be removed if they become infected or unsightly. Below find these and other conditions that can affect the scalp.
