Avatar n tn Hello, From the pattern of baldness it looks like male pattern baldness. Androgenic alopecia is a common form of hair loss and typically occurs in M shaped pattern. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Other causes may be use of some drugs, infections and underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. A biopsy (taking a small sample of cells to examine under a microscope) of your scalp may be needed to establish the correct diagnosis.
Avatar m tn i m 24 male, i m suffering from diffuse hair loss, mainly in the vertex and frontal region, my father and his line of family dont suffer from any sort of alopecia, but my grandpa ( mother's side of the family) suffered from total alopecia around the same age of mine, whereas his son (my uncle) suffers from severe frontal alopecia but most of his vertex and temporal are intact, my hair loss started coinciding with a pretty stressful event, at this point back then i thought it might be just t
Avatar f tn I am 49 years and have developed a itchy burning scalp with hair loss. This has been going on for about 2 months. The hair loss is noticable to me but not by others yet. I have started running and training for a 1/2 marathon in these last 2 months and was wondering if this could cause hair loss. I also wear a baseball cap when I run and wonder if I might of caused some kind of fungus to develope when I sweat. My hair type has changed from healthy and oils to frizzy in some parts and real dry.

Avatar n tn This they would term as the vertex and bitemporal regions of hair loss. In women, the loss is usually limited over the crown. Pattern loss may be seen as early as in the 30's in men and later in women. Hair loss may be due to an underlying scalp problem also. Seborrheic dermatitis and fungal infections may present with a well demarcated or diffuse loss of hair. Discoid lupus erythematosus may also cause hair loss in more localized areas. Do the males in your family experience hair loss?
Avatar n tn My question is I have been noticing more then normal hair loss the last few months. Not in one area but all over, as of now I have no signs of a receding hair line or bald spot. Infect now I have a lot of hair, my hairdresser told me before the I have fine hair but a lot of it (lots of follicles). My Dad has lots of hair too. But now When I run my hand thru my hair ill see anywhere from 1-5 strands of hair in my hand. In the shower I counted (Yes I counted) about 40 -55 strands.

Avatar n tn Do you know what caused your hair loss? once you know the underlying issue you know whether or not the hair is likely to grow back... would you consider a partial hair piece?
Avatar m tn Depending on your type of hair loss, treatments are available. If a medicine is causing your hair loss, your doctor may be able to prescribe a different medicine and if it is due to infections or systemic disease,then treating it will treat baldness. Medicines which are useful are minoxidil and finasteride. Finally one can resort to hair transplantation also.
Avatar m tn From your symptoms I would like to rule out androgenic alopecia as well. It is a common form of hair loss and typically occurs in M shaped pattern.

Avatar m tn I am having a repeat problem with hair loss. Background: exactly 1 year ago I took stanozolol (anabolic steroid, Winstrol) for 2 weeks, but immediately stopped after my hair quickly, and aggressively fell out. I had significant hair loss in a very short time. I visited an endocrinologist and she said 2 weeks was too short of a time for 5-AR and DHT to be the culprit. As a result and for precautionary reasons, I was prescribed 1mg Propecia and have been taking it ever since.

Avatar m tn Go and see a Dermatologist or an Trichologist, they specialise in hair loss and will be able to determine how your hair loss is happening if its due to genetics, diet etc. Going to get your Hormones and Thyroid levels checked is a good idea too!
Avatar f tn Hello, The cause of itchy scalp and hair loss can be also due to hypothyroidism, male pattern alopecia, stress, anxiety and taking certain medications. In your case it can be the change of birth control. Consult your doctor and get prescribed the previous birth control. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar m tn High chromium indicates the loss of chromium through hair. it can be due to mineral imbalance. Biounavailabilty of chromium usually indicates a disrupted cell renewal process leading to subsequent hair loss. It also indicates depleted energy levels. Manganese: This indicates manganese toxicity possibly du to drinking water contamination. This might lead to iron deficiency in future. Usage of hair dyes also gives a false indication of high manganese content.
