Hair Loss Diagnosis

It can be very distressing to discover hair loss or excessive hair shedding. We understand that knowing where to go to get help or advice is problematic. There are many websites promising amazing results following the use of their products. Below is a guide to what you should do first.

Visit Your Doctor

If you are experiencing what you believe to be more hair loss than usual then the first step is to visit your Doctor for investigation and diagnosis. Your Doctor may identify causes that can be treated.

If appropriate your Doctor may refer you to a Consultant Dermatologist. Dermatology is the study of skin and this includes hair loss. You may feel that you would like further diagnosis from a Consultant Dermatologist without your Doctor actually recommending this. In this case you may arrange this privately.
