Trichotillomania is characterized by recurrent pulling out of one’s hair despite the attempts to stop it. Children most commonly pull hair from their head, but they can also pull from eyebrows and eyelashes as well as other parts of the body. Sometimes children may pull their hair in response to an urge, in order to feel good, but sometimes children may not even realize that they are doing it. Most commonly trichotillomania starts with adolescents, but sometimes in can be seen in younger children as well. The most obvious signs of trichotillomania are bald spots on the head or gaps in eyelashes and/or eyebrows.
