Hello, The term, trichotillomania represents a serious mental disorder. Specifically, mentalhealth professionals describe it as a sort of impulse control disorder consisting of pulling hair from any part of the body including the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, chest, pubic area, arms and legs. There are both behavioural and pharmacological therapy available, and you are taking right medicines for your conditions. Please continue your medication and have regular follow up with your doctor.
