Female balding: Since this is difficult to diagnose without being seen, i suggest you make an appointment with your family doctor or a dermatologist to be examined.

Diagnosis first: You really have to find out what is causing it, especially because it is one isolated spot. Infection is possible, and if it is, it has to be treated. Sometimes skin biopsy is needed to make a diagnosis. Find the cause, then treat it.
