what could cause symmetrical hair loss on tops of hands and feet?

Hair loss: I believe this symmetrical type of hair loss involving only the hands and feet is genetically determined. If the scalp,pubic,chest and axillary(armpits) are not involved it speaks against an endocrine or dermatological problem. If you have further concerns a dermatologist can evaluate and advise you.
