With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

In any case, I would rather tell you to be seen and have someone give you formal diagnosis and treatment before you do anything. This might be related to some other problems. ...Read more
