Hair and scalpTrichoscopy is crucial for diagnosing a wide range of hair and scalp conditions, including alopecia, inflammatory scalp diseases, and infections. It aids in differentiating between various types of alopecia, such as androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, and scarring alopecias, by identifying specific dermoscopic features associated with each condition.
