@Golam Mortuza Traction alopecia is hair loss that's caused by repeatedly pulling on your hair. You can develop this condition if you often wear your hair in a tight ponytail, bun, or braids, especially if you use chemicals or heat on your hair. Traction alopecia can be reversed if you stop pulling your hair back Treatment antibiotics to prevent infection in any open sores topical steroids to bring down swelling on your scalp antifungal shampoos minoxidil (Rogaine) to regrow hair biotin supplements to strengthen your hair

Ringworm infection of scalp.(taenia capitis) Hair and scalp scratch examinaion with KOH under microscope. Shampoo ketoconazole or selenium sulfide to remove fungus. Antifungal orally to disinfect hair follicle of infected hair. Time horizon for cure 3-6 months.

Itchy scalp with hair loss suggest 2 diagnose 1. Seborrhic dermatitis 2. Tinea capitis In alopecia, itching is not present For tinea capitis, lesions are present. I think it's seborrhic dermatitis Wysolone 5 bd Atarax 10 HS Ketosar shampoo Minoxidil topical

Trichotillomania Pulling of hairs leading to traction ALOPECIA Proper shampooing Oiling and smooth combing Reassurance Tab biotin for support No visible fungal infection or psoriasis

Traction alopecia.. It  is hair loss that's caused by repeatedly pulling on your hair. You can develop this condition if you often wear your hair in a tight ponytail, bun, or braids, especially if you use chemicals or heat on your hair. Traction alopecia can be reversed if you stop pulling your hair back.. It is a form of acquired hair loss that results from prolonged or repetitive tension on the scalp hair. It was first described in 1907 in subjects from Greenland who had developed hair loss along the hairline due to prolonged wearing of tight ponytails.. Avoid tight hairstyles if possible.. Avoid or limit chemicals, including relaxers. Steroid creams can reduce swelling .
