Trichotillomania: neurosis where patient pulls out own hair
Trichotillomania is a type of impulse control disorder. People with these disorders know that they can do damage by acting on the impulses, but they cannot stop themselves. They may pull out their hair when they're stressed as a way to try to soothe themselves.
¬ Feeling tense before pulling hair or when trying to resist the urge to pull hair
¬ Feeling relieved, satisfied, or pleased after acting on the impulse to pull hair
¬ Distress or problems in work or social life due to hair pulling
¬ Bare patches where the hair has been pulled out
¬ Behaviors such as inspecting the hair root, twirling the hair, pulling the hair between the teeth, chewing on hair, or eating hair
Many people who have trichotillomania try to deny they have a problem and may attempt to hide their hair loss by wearing hats, scarves, and false eyelashes and eyebrows.
