Trichotillomania (TTM/Trich) is the term for repetitive hair pulling. Trich often results in noticeable bald patches.
It is one of a number of behaviours known as Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviours (BFRBs).
Trich varies greatly in its severity, location on the body, and its response to treatment.
For some people, Trich is mild and can be managed with extra awareness and concentration. For others, the urge may be so strong that it makes thinking of anything else nearly impossible.
