Abstract: Trichotillomania is a chronic impulse control disorder that has recently seen increased public awareness resulting in more sufferers seeking treatment. Use of SSRIs, or cognitive behavioural interventions either alone or in combination, brings about a reduction in symptoms for most who, until recently, have been a silent group of sufferers who believed they alone plucked their hair.
