Bald spot on head
I have a bald spot on the side of my head about the size of a 50 cent piece that happened overnight. It does not itch or bother me and the hair is not growing back. What could it be?

Probably alopecia areata.  If it were ringworm, it usually would itch.  One treatment I've heard of is having prednisone injected to reduce inflammation and start the hair growing back.  I have heard one possible cause of alopecia as being gluten allergy or Celiac disease.
