A member asked:

Could impact to the head cause hair loss/damage via shock? if so, would it be a bald spot or marbled throughout the scalp?

Hair: Local contusion can cause a local area of hair loss but shock is unlikely to cause marbling although alopecia may occur due to stress

This is a problem. Check with your doc. No reason to wait.
