It's been almost a year since I've had a bald spot on my chin (About the size of a quarter).I woke up one morning this past January and noticed that a patch of hair had fallen out so I decided to shave my beard off. Since then i've tried growing my beard out a few times but all i've noticed are a few dis-colored hairs growing. Being that it's been so long i'm wondering if I should be concerned? What is the cause and can this be treated? Also, I read that it can take a couple of years to grow back....is that true????????
