Trichotillomania – Overview

Trichotillomania is a condition that causes hair loss in patches. In this condition, the hair does not fall out on its own, but is pulled out by the patient in response to some emotional stress. It is a type of impulse disorder. Just as some people have a tendency to bite their fingernails or pick their skin when stressed, patients of trichotillomania end up pulling their own hair out.
