Skin DiseasesNo matter what type of hair loss you are experiencing, a temporary one or a permanent one, you should take into account one very important factor. The specialists at the U.S. National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases express their concern about the fact that a lack of proper care about skin on the balding areas of head and other body parts, increases the risks of having serious skin diseases, including skin cancer and others.

The specialists created a list of tips for those people who experience hair loss and want to protect themselves from serious skin problems. First of all, it is necessary to protect the scalp from increased exposure to sunlight by applying sunscreen and covering up the exposed area of the scalp with a hat, a cap or a scarf. Using hats and scarfs can also help to protect your exposed areas from cold weather. In addition, it is recommended to those who suffer from hair loss to apply special antibiotic ointments to the areas which are especially vulnerable to various infections and viruses (like nostrils, etc.).
