People with trichotillomania feel an overpowering desire to pull out their hair. This Urge is recurrent & irresistible. Hair pulling from the scalp often leaves patchy bald spots.

People with trichotillomania may feel embarrassed, frustrated, ashamed, or depressed about it. They may worry what others will think or say. They might feel nagged by people who don't understand that they're not doing this on purpose & that’s why they usually try to hide the behavior from others — even their families. This can make it difficult to get help.

Trichotillomania is not just a bad habit, it's a mental health disorder, and it's unlikely to get better without treatment.

If you can't stop pulling out your hair or you feel embarrassed or ashamed by your appearance as a result of your hair pulling, talk to your family, companion or doctor.

Homeopathic medicines can help the brain deal better with urges, making them easier to resist.
