新冠患者的新症状:严重脱发

Chris Morris 2022-02-02
皮肤病学家发现,许多感染新冠病毒的患者出现了严重脱发症状,在长期患者中尤其普遍,这可能是因为炎症导致毛发生长周期出现变化,脱发通常会持续6至9个月。

最近,医生在部分新冠肺炎患者中发现了一种令人意外的新症状:脱发。

哈肯萨克大学医疗中心(Hackensack University Medical Center)发布的报告称,许多人在感染病毒并且初步症状康复后出现了严重脱发。该中心称其治疗的新冠检测呈阳性的患者数量,超过了新泽西州的其他医疗体系。

皮肤病学家亚历克西斯·扬在这份报告所附的声明中表示,患者通常会在感染后的几周至三个月内开始出现脱发。脱发通常会持续六至九个月,但个人状况可能有巨大差异。长期患者出现脱发的情况尤其普遍。

曾经在哈肯萨克大学医疗中心接受治疗的患者宝拉·迪亚兹在研究中表示,她曾经有一头浓密的头发。她说:“我因为感染新冠病毒而在医院治疗了六天,在出院回家的几周后开始大量脱发。这令我非常震惊。”

亚历克西斯·扬解释说,出现脱发的原因是“人体出现过度活跃的炎症。炎症可能导致毛发生长周期出现变化。”

新冠病毒造成了越来越多出人意料的影响,脱发是最新被发现的一种症状。今年1月早些时候,妙佑医疗国际(Mayo Clinic)的医生发现,奥密克戎变异毒株感染者出现了盗汗症状。

该医院表示,在因为新冠病毒而住院的患者中,22%的患者出院后几个月出现脱发。2021年夏天,英国毛发学家协会(U.K.’ s Institute of Trichologists)有79%的会员表示,在门诊中看到过“新冠后脱发”的病例。

压力是造成脱发的核心问题,而且这不只是新冠病毒导致的特有现象。

亚历克西斯·扬称:“在压力状况下脱发很常见。人们可能在分娩或大手术之后出现脱发,现在我们看到部分新冠感染者也出现了同样的状况。”

得克萨斯州的皮肤病学家也曾经见过新冠后休止期脱发的症状,并表示患者的毛发生长周期会在一年半以内重新恢复。

与此同时,出现脱发的患者可以尝试增加摄入维生素,管理压力和饮食,以控制脱发。(188金宝搏 下载)

Doctors are identifying a new symptom among some COVID-19 patients that might be startling: hair loss.

Hackensack University Medical Center, which says it treats more COVID-positive patients than any other health system in New Jersey, has issued a report saying many people have experienced excessive hair loss after contracting the virus and recovering from primary symptoms.

Hair loss typically begins several weeks to three months post-infection, said dermatologist Alexis Young in a statement with the published study. And it typically lasts six to nine months, though that can vary among individuals. Hair loss is especially prevalent among long-haul patients.

“I spent six days in the hospital being treated for the virus, and several weeks after I came home, my hair started falling out in clumps,” said Paula Diaz, a former patient at HUMC, who noted in the study that she has always had a thick head of hair. “It was devastating.”

The hair loss occurs “because of overactive inflammation in the body," Young explained. “The inflammation can cause a shift in the hair cycle.”

Hair loss is the latest symptom in a growing list of unexpected COVID effects. Earlier January, doctors at the Mayo Clinic noted patients with the Omicron variant suffered from night sweats.

The hospital notes that among patients who had been hospitalized with COVID, 22% were dealing with hair loss months after being discharged. Last summer, 79% of the members of the U.K.’s Institute of Trichologists said they had seen cases of “post-COVD hair loss” in their clinics.

Stress is at the heart of the issue—and it’s not just a COVID phenomenon.

“Hair loss after a stressful situation is not unusual,” Young noted. “People can experience hair loss after childbirth or a major surgery, and we’re now seeing the same results after COVID-19 infection in some people.”

Dermatologists in Texas have seen the post-COVID symptom, formally known as telogen effluvium, as well and say the hair growth cycle should reset within a year and a half.

In the meantime, patients who are experiencing post-COVID hair loss can increase their vitamin uptake and manage their stress and diet to try to control the condition.
