I am 21. I'm losing hair. I have pimples on my scalp that bleed a little when i scratch them. Scalp is itchy and oily unless i shampoo a lot. Advice?

If the hair loss is more than the remodeling on the temples that all virile men get around age 21, you need a dermatologist visit for this alone. There are a variety of causes of scalp pimples and this absolutely needs a dermatologist's investigation.

The white thing is your hair follicle. Hair loss can be caused by many things including thyroid dysfunction, medications or major stressors.

the more your scratch, the more hair you will lose from those spots, you should see your doctor first and they will tell you if seeing a dermatologist is mandated
