Dermatol Reports. 2015 Dec 22;7(3):6063. doi: 10.4081/dr.2015.6063. eCollection 2015.
Severity of Depression and Anxiety in Patients with Alopecia Areata in Bandar Abbas, Iran.
Baghestani S1, Zare S2, Seddigh SH3.

Alopecia areata (AA) is a chronic disease which esthetic outcomes may result in deep effects on mental disorders of patients. In this case-control study, we compared the mental health of 68 patients diagnosed with AA with 68 healthy individuals using Hamilton anxiety and depression rating scales. There were significant differences between the case and control groups regarding the prevalence of anxiety and depression. The means of anxiety scores in cases and control group were 12.76±7.21 vs 8.54±6.37, P=0.003. Likewise, the means of depression scores for the groups were 12.84±4.03 vs 6.22±4.95, P=0.001. Further-more, patients with AA were exposed to depression approximately five times and to anxiety about three times more than normal people. Our study revealed a high prevalence of anxiety and depression in AA patients. Dermatologists should pay more attention on psychological effect of the disease on the patients.

What if the depression and anxiety is actually the cause of AA or maybe even MPB. Its obviously very common among hair loss sufferers and maybe its something we should pay attention to in order to solve this mystery. But then we dont really know if the depression and anxiety is the result of going through hairloss or if it was present already without hairloss.

Is it possible that depression and anxiety can be passed down from parents to children when being born since people claim that hairloss is genetic?

Is there a way to completely block or atleast somehow minimize it whatever is causing the anxiety and depression and then we can tell if that really was the problem?

You know, what if MPB is the result of social ill feelings?

Like, being cast out, or self concluding society/the people are not worth it, holding grudge, fighting  social injustice, wether real or imagined.


we're social animals, in other animals,  looks change depending on their social position and hormones.

Bullied boys produce more testosterone than their peers.

Can we link mpb to social attitude? if you're balding, you're probably desperate and helpless and would do things your moral 14 year old would be ashamed of.
So you go about your way, feeling contemptous about it all, but still trying to get yours.

While non-balding might do the same thing, but their moral attitude is different, and they are not as "desperate". They are not walking around contemptous, just enjoying themselves.

It's probably very "faint" not a huge change you usually notice. I started balding around the time I witnessed a lot of social defeat, and concluded fuck the othes, I'm right. But this faint conclusion alters everything in your behaviour, hormones and probably hairloss
