About Children's Trichotillomania
Trichotillomania or habitual hair pulling: Is the habit of twirling or plucking the hair. Trichotillomania is thought to be an obsessive-compulsive disorder where the patient usually feels compelled to pluck their hair. The hair loss is patchy, and characterised by broken hairs of varying length. Within the patches, hair loss is not complete. As long as the hair trauma was not severe or chronic enough to cause scarring, the hair will re-grow when the trauma is stopped.
