A dermatologist is also responsible for taking care of disorders related to the hair and nails. According to the doctor Adroaldo Luiz ApolinárioHair problems are one of the most common complaints in dermatology clinics, along with acne. According to the specialist, many of the problems observed in the hair and nails can be a sign of other diseases. “Through a brittle nail, a nail that is not growing, and nail disorders as well, a dermatologist can come up with a diagnosis of systemic disease that is the responsibility of other specialties,” Adroaldo comments.
Hair loss is one of the most common complaints about hair loss. According to the dermatologist, it is necessary to first analyze if it is a normal condition, since it is common for hair strands to fall out daily, at a rate of 100 strands per day. Adroaldo explains that hair has three phases: anagen, which is growth that takes about three to four years; catagen, which is a break that can last from three to four weeks; and telogen, which is the stage in which hair falls out. The dermatologist also explained that people who have undergone some surgeries may experience hair loss. Another situation that can cause the problem is those who have tested positive for Covid-19, for example.
Adroaldo points out that an analysis is necessary to find out the true cause of hair loss, as it can have several causes, for both men and women. According to the specialist, about 50% of the male population suffers or will develop baldness, the so-called androgenetic alopecia, which can develop for both genetic and hormonal reasons. The topic was highlighted in an interview with Dr. Adroaldo on the programme Meeting point. Listen fully:
About nail problems, Adroaldo comments that the main reason for their weakness is the excessive use of products. “It’s the habit of going to a manicure, pushing the cuticles, removing the excess skin and going there all week and applying nail polish. The next week, go in there, push again, cut, apply acetone, and polish the nails. It damages the quality of the nail’s keratin,” he explains. . Adroaldo also points out that using soaps, detergents, and other chemicals can make nails brittle. Just like hair, weak nails can also indicate symptoms of other diseases, such as thyroid problems, iron deficiency, or another vitamin deficiency.
A dermatologist says the habit of removing every cuticle from your nails is unhealthy. Adroaldo explains that the cuticle is responsible for covering the nail and creating a barrier. When removed, the nail is without this protection, which can cause viruses and bacteria to enter the nail area. It is recommended to remove excess skin only. Also, another tip is to wear gloves when handling chemicals and cleaning products.
