Other Common Scalp Fungus
As well as the few scalp fungi that we have already mentioned, there are also numerous other species that could cause you some trouble such as Dermatophytes, tinea capitis, Malassezia, which causes yellowish greasy dandruff and the like. Meanwhile, other species such as trichosporon can also be potentially problematic, and it’s crucial to keep yourself protected from these following your hair transplant.
Generally speaking, fungal infections of the scalp can become a problem incredibly quickly, owing to the fungi’s ability to multiple rapidly, which can soon lead to them taking control of your scalp. This will be particularly prominent for people with a reduced immune system or open wounds, such as directly following a hair transplant procedure.
Fortunately, your dermatologist will be able to assist you in developing the correct procedures.
Will Fungal Hair Loss Regrow?
Hair loss due to fungal infections can be a real worry for many people, but the reassuring news is that most fungal hair loss is usually just a temporary condition and something that you won’t need to worry about long-term. To speed up the recovery of hair following a fungal scalp infection, there are some treatments and supplements you can use. From a healing perspective, anti-fungal antimycotics are generally considered as the common treatment; these are most commonly provided in an oral form, and prescribed alongside particular brands and makes of anti-fungal shampoos and tinctures. Along with this, a variety of home remedies may potentially be useful . Apple cider vinegar is often the most common of these, alongside other herbs and products to promote healing such as turmeric or garlic.
In rare cases whereby the hair does not regrow then there is a good chance that this is caused by a secondary factor to the fungal hair loss itself. Indeed, genetic hair loss or hair loss due to old age are among the most common causes for long-term permanent hair loss, as well as certain conditions.
Nonetheless, while some hair loss will be permanent and will not regrow without intervention, there are ways that you can encourage the regrowth of lost hair through hair transplant procedures. Hair transplants transfer healthy hair follicles that are immune to hair loss hormones to the balding or thinning area, providing an artificial way to replace lost hair. These hairs, over time, will heal and re-establish, giving noticeable results after just a few months and a natural hairline within a year or so!
