Trichotillomania, also called the “hair pulling disorder,” is a long-term chronic disorder. Its underlying cause remains unclear but experts believe it’s the result of combined genetic and environmental factors. Without treatment, symptoms can vary in severity over time, whether it’s the span of weeks, months or even years at a time.
With trichotillomania, hair pulling can be focused or automatic. In focused cases, people pull their hair intentionally to relieve stress or tension. Whereas, in automatic cases, people pull their hair without realization. It should be noted that these cases are not autonomous; the same person may engage in both focused and automatic hair pulling depending on the situation or their mood.
People with trichotillomania can suffer from scarring or permanent hair loss in areas where hair is pulled. If you can’t stop pulling your hair, talk to your doctor because trichotillomania is a chronic disorder that’s unlikely to improve without treatment.
