The Most Common Cause of Hair Loss Is the Least Suspected, Warns Trichology Expert
Date:4/21/2009

COSTA MESA, Calif., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- In the United States, one of the most common causes of hair loss often goes undetected: hyperhydrosis, also known as hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Erkkie Harris-Wells, who diagnoses and treats hair and scalp ailments in her role as trichologist and founder of the Miyohara International Trichology Clinic (http://www.miyoharainternational.com), stated, "Hyperhydrosis accounts for about 70 percent of hair loss cases for both males and females. While European physicians are accustomed to this type of diagnosis, most American doctors are unaware of the link between hyperhydrosis and hair damage. It can't be treated with a drug like Rogaine. I'm even writing an article to alert hair transplant surgeons to the ways in which hyperhydrosis can compromise their restoration procedures."

Sweating is a generally healthy mechanism in which sweat glands help remove impurities and cool the body down from overheating. "But excessive sweating can be harmful to the hair and scalp because of the lactic acid in our sweat secretions," explained Harris-Wells. The acid strips away the epithelial sheath, which is the outer protective layer of the hair. As a result, hair loses volume and density, and it becomes porous and dry to the point of brittleness. The excess acid can also cause inflammation of the scalp, and if untreated can produce red, sore pustules that will become infected with bacteria. Harris-Wells has treated both genders, from adults to children, for this condition.

"The most notable form of hyperhydrosis is excessive sweating in the hands, feet, underarms and face," she said. "For example, people with thyroid problems may not outwardly sweat but still undergo the internal chemical processes that lead to lactic acid being secreted onto the scalp and hair."

Hyperhydrosis cases range from mild to severe in terms of hair loss. Sufferers can include hair transplant patients, men and women with hormonal imbalances, avid gym-goers, sports figures and athletes, highly stressed individuals, and people with medical conditions that are genetic.

Harris-Wells' clinic is expanding its line of products formulated to counteract the effects of hyperhydrosis as well as other forms of hair loss conditions. Harris-Wells can diagnose out-of-state individuals who send her hair samples and a copy of their last medical exam. She will also refer them to appropriate medical practitioners as needed.
