Is it feasible to produce Trichotillomania from the thought of likely bald?

Question by JacQy: Is it possible to develop Trichotillomania from the thought of going bald?
Well basically I lose a lot of hair all the time… I’ve spent hundreds of dollars at the hair specialist but everything seems normal. I feel like i’m definitely going bald and as a result I tend to touch and pull on my hair a lot to see how much hair will fall out. I’m just wondering if this is related to Trichotillomania??? thanks!

If you are irritating it enough (I.E. straching) than yes you could be causing it. If it is falling out in patches you probably have a condition called alopecia areata, if it is falling out all over you probably have alopecia totalis. Talk to your Doctor about cyclosporin
