Hi. Im 15. I was born with spinabifida. About a year ago I started noticing my hair falling out. It wasnt much. Just a little but here and there when I combed it out. Then as time progressed, the amount of hair I was losing increased alot. Now every time I take a shower, I usaully comb my hair in the shower after I put conditioner on it. Massive amounts of hair come out. Its really scaring me. Is this normal or is there somthing wrong with me? Or does this go along with the spinabifida?
Hair loss in men and women usually has genetic causes that could be accelerated by other factors. There is no report to show that spina bifida is causing hair loss or that hair loss is one of the coexisting factors in patients with spina bifida as of yet.
