There are a number of infection-related conditions that can contribute to hair loss. Ringworm is a fungal skin infection in which small patches of itchy and scaly skin appear on the scalp, which lead to excessive dandruff, flaking of the skin, and inflammation.

Signs and symptoms of scalp ringworm:

  • Itchiness of the scalp
  • Scaly or red patches on the scalp
  • Flaking skin or excessive dandruff
  • Bald spots on the scalp
  • Hair that breaks off
  • Brittle hair
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Fever
  • Crusty or pus-leaking swellings on the scalp

If the ringworm has been treated and permanent hair loss has occurred, then it is important to see a hair loss specialist to explore your hair loss treatment in Mississauga, Detroit, or Oakville.
