Diffuse hair fall can be due to various reasons like weathering of hair (straightening, perming ironing, improper handling of hair), hormonal conditions like PCOD and thyroid problems and nutritional deficiencies like iron, calcium and vitamin B12.
Common nail problems include onychomycosis, ingrown toe nail, candidal paronychia and brittle and lusterless nails.
Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of nail plate causing discoloration and dystrophy of nail plate leading to cosmetic impairment. It is caused due to overgrowth of the fungus due to excessive sweating and hence more common in males due to closed footwear and in athletes.
An ingrowing toe nail is a painful condition due to impinging of the nail into the surrounding skin causing a secondary infection. It is caused due to improper footwear and improper cutting of nails and hence more common in females.
Brittle and lusterless nails can be seen in a variety of skin conditions like atopic dermatitis, LP, collagen vascular disorders and psoriasis. It can also be seen in systemic disorders like kidney and liver problems.
