Weird hair loss, itchy flaky scalp

Hi,

I'm 20, male, and have recently discovered that my hair is reducing in quantity and is almost completely gone down the line on my part and maybe on my crown(s)? I've included a picture, I'm trying to figure out what it is and how to fix it. I've been vegan for a few years, have had anxiety disorder for about a year, and i just noticed this when i got my haircut (so probably a big change within ~1month). I have had flaky scalp my entire life, my parents told me it was just dry skin. This is flaring up my social anxiety I really need help.

Thank you so much

Apart from the hair that's missing i cant see anything else in this picture. If you re flaking and itching you need to buy a Nizoral shampoo ( ketoconazole ) from the pharmacist and start washing your hair with that until the flaking stops. After that just once or twice a week. If hair loss continues after this there a lot of things these days for hair loss and its best there being done before you lose too much hair.
