A Study of the Requency and Initiative Stage of Alopecia Amongst Workers in Clean Room Environments Compared to the General Population
Eun-Hee Yoo
This study aimed to specifically verify increasing tendency of alopecia among young generation and influencing relationship between working environment and alopecia. As a result the frequency of alopecia amongst workers, who are wearing dust-free garment in clean room environments was 61.3% while the general population was 51.3% so the workers in clean room environments showed 10% higher result. Both of the workers in clean room environments and the general workers picked stress as a main reason of alopecia. However, the two groups showed different alopecia causes since the workers in clean room environments chose stress as the prior reason and wearing dust free garment as second reason while the general workers chose genetic factor as the prior reason and stress as the second reason. The initiative stage of alopecia amongst workers in clean room environments was eminently faster than the general workers since 81.6% of the workers in clean room environment and 53.6% of the general workers in twenties appeared initiative stage of alopecia. Form of alopecia of the workers in the clean room environment was comparatively even on parietal region (calvaria) while the general workers had M-shaped alopecia which is a typical genetic alopecia form. The point of the study is that wearing of dust-free garment can advance alopecia stage and act as an alopecia cause among twenties to thirties who work in the clean room environment. In the view of company, therefore, effort and improvement are raised to reduce the stress of wearing dust free garment and especially to get rid of factors that disturb cutaneous respiration.
