  1. Corey Says:

    There is a fungus names “tinea capitis” (commonly referred to as “ringworm”) that can cause scalp hair loss.

    This fungus causes inflicted areas of the scalp to become tender, red and inflamed. It also causes itchiness, so when people itch it causes further damage to the hair (since the fungus causes hair strands to break much more easily).

    Piedra (trichomycosis nodularis) is a fungus that can cause hair loss by weakening hair strands and making them break more easily.
