Im a 34 year old white male, about eight months ago i noticed a bald spot on my jaw line and has since moved to several different areas, under my chin, on the other side of my jaw and now is starting on my goatee, do you have any idea what could be causing this? thank you very much for your time and any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much, sincerely, Troy Thompson.

Hi!
Localized patch of hair loss on jaw line or on your goatee can be due to fungal infection (tinea versicolor) or any other fungal infection or it can also be due to seborrhagic dermatitis. Often these cause light discoloration with hair loss. It is difficult to diagnose on net. Please consult a skin specialist. Take care!
