Doctor insights on:
Why Am I Losing My Eyebrows
Many reasons: Male pattern baldness is to be expected especially if you're a hairy-chested man; otherwise, seek a cause. Telogen effluvium (trivial) is patchy hair loss especially when you're stressed. Hypothyroidism (very serious) makes hair brittle and prone to fall out. There are a huge number of different posibilities. A physician's office visit is definitely in order. Good luck & thanks for asking. ...Read more
Anorexia: Appetite is a complex process mediated by the brain, emotions, metabolic needs, health of the gut & surrounding organs. Lack of weight loss would be good news here. I recommend a visit to your doctor to discuss the circumstances that preceded your anorexia & that may contribute to its persistence. Simple testing is appropriate. ...Read more
Hi since i stopped breastfedding I am losing my hair seriously (2month now) what can I do you? Shave my head ? Cut my hair? Pls help
Should pass: Significant life events like childbirth can throw your hair into a dormant phase, where normal hair loss is not replaced and hair thins. This can last up to 6 mo before your body re-sets the process. You might want to visit with a dermatologist and confirm this and exclude other factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bladder infection: You most likely have a common post intercourse problem called a urinary tract infection. ...Read more
Depends on cause...: One's primary care doctor can check for medical causes. If none are found, then one can see a dermatologist, especially one specializing in hair restoration (some treatments: minoxidil, etc, ...). Medical causes may include: hormonal problems (low thyroid), seborrhea, alopecia areata, stressful illness, etc... Other causes: genetic male/female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium, etc... ...Read more
Concerning: This can signal loss of testosterone in a grown man, even if the sexual stuff is normal. Hemochromatosis, other liver troubles, pituitary problems and a bunch of other possiblities exist. Your physician usually screens you for liver stuff fairly often, and if the libido is flagging, make an appointment. ...Read more
See a doctor: Alopecia has many causes, so without being able to see how the hair is being lost (patchy? Diffuse? Scarred areas?) it is impossible to say how to approach it. See a doctor, hopefully a dermatologist, for further evaluation. ...Read more
Many causes: If the vision is diminishing in one eye only, you need to have an ophthalmologist examine your eyes quickly. There are many causes from a need for glasses, vascular problems, systemic disease like diabetes, retinal detachment and many others. Get evaluated as soon as possible. ...Read more
You decide: If it's alopecia areata, there's little to do. If it's telogen effluvium, look at your overall health (including diseases that lab work might find) and generally it self-cures. If it's male-pattern baldness, it's mostly genetic -- the hairier a guy's chest, the sooner he loses it on top, look around. There are medicine, surgery, and the "embrace being a man" option -- look great by staying fit. ...Read more
I am working out and really watching what i eat, why am i not losing weight i just started 3 weeks ago and i been really busting my but why can't i drop weight, i been big all my life and i hate it, what am i doing wrong?
Patience: It can take time but would still look really closely at your eating habits. When you work out a lot, you will likely feel hungry as your body is burning more calories. The increase in appetite can lead to consuming more calories. Really need to ensure that you are burning more calories than you are taking in and you will lose weight: cut back on carbohydrates..Focus lean protein, fresh veggies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See a professional!: Don't try to "tough it" out and fight it on your own. Seek professional help, because being angry and having the feeling of "loosing my mind" are usually signs of a serious condition in need of treatment. A psychologist or a psychiatrist are good choices. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Masturbation: I am not sure what you are asking. But, masturbation is a normal and natural part of the human experience. The semen and sperm are made in an endless supply in young men. Your prostate gland can replenish the seminal fluid. There is no medical or scientific reason to limit your sexual experience. ...Read more
No: Eyebrow loss, particularly the lateral, or outer part of the eyebrows, is sometimes associated with hypothyroidism. It is believed to be due to the underlying autoimmunity (antibodies targeting one's own proteins) rather than the thyroid hormone levels. Because of this, the course of any eyebrow loss may get worse or better when starting levothyroxine (lt4), but doesn't mean the lt4 is to blame. ...Read more

May need surgery: Since you are under the care of a dermatologist, I imagine that there was an investigation as to why you have thinning/no eyebrows. Do you have hair loss anywhere else? If other medications have been tried and exhausted, you may need to consult with a facial plastic or hair restoration surgeon to discuss surgical options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sure.: This is a kind of cyst involving a sebacrous gland and has a lot of dead skin cells or keratinocytes in it. This is why it gets bigger and needs to be removed, along with the possibility of complications. But it should not involve many hair follicles, as a lot of its growth is below the surface and does not extend past its capsule. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm losing a lot of my eyebrows. Can stem cells be used to create new eyebrow hairs that could be planted into my forehead?
See a dermatologist: The eyebrow, though close to the eye, is really an area covered by dermatologists. I would see a dermatologist to find a cause for the loss of hair from this area. There are many possible causes, including hypothyroid, allergy, infection, eczema, autoimmune problems, and more. There are methods for regrowing the hair in addition to treating the underlying cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dr thinks I am coeliac. Would this explain itchiness all over body, losing eyebrows, thinning hair and big scales on upper eyelids and forehead?
Possibly right: I'm assuming you're asking about celiac disease. This is a disease in which certain foods cause the body to attack itself. So symptoms can appear anywhere. The most common symptoms are abdominal cramping and nausea. More and more patients are found to have it who have symptoms that are not intestinal, like rashes. You should have bloodwork done. It is worth a trial of a gluten free diet. ...Read more
