What it is? dozens of doctors and no clue

I need urgent and scientific help. My partner has a very severe illness of hairy part of his skin on his head. His mental shape is catastrophic and he keeps saying every day about suicide and jumping from the window of our 10th floor apartment. I fear that he may really do it. Men in his family, from father and mother side, were never bald. And my partner had no signs of baldness. But one day during holidays in Turkey he went out of swimming pool with pimples and pustules on his chest. This pimples and pustules expanded on his face and finally on his scalp. And stayed on his scalp for some weeks. The whole story You have further down in detail. The fact is that he started to loose hair irregularly on the top of his head. We have photographed a lot. On the skin there were small pimples after several months there are red dots. The hair actually is not falling in numbers, but rather disappears, sort of like it dissolves. We have visited dozens of doctors in Poland, including the Dermatologic Clinic of the main Warsaw Medical University and nobody knows what it is. Lichen planus has been diagnosed but several findings are against these theory. I think that this is kind of infection, perhaps bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, parasites, because small similar changes were identified on the head of my partner’s son. Please help us, because the condition of my partner’s head is deteriorating and it looks that it spreads on other people and doctors in Poland are so week and neglecting that we have no other hope: only You could help us. Please treat it seriously.

Consultation: it cannot be atopic ... it actually looks like lichen planus. The question is whether stress factors were strong because it releases the LP. Surprised that the hospital did not consult the mucosa. A look at the mucosa and say that, however, LP. A look at the nails. Bottom line, it actually looks on the LP, it does not look for anything else. Keep current treatment.

In the case of the graft. the need for hair transplant about 2500-3000. It's so much that you need to do strip technique. But after examination it turned out that weak hair, skin so awful that not fit even for a transplant.

The family doctor - a last resort.
I do not remember what I was loaded, but it was a monthly antibiotic therapy directed at my idea, it was something of a bacterial, viral, generally invasive.
