Yes, a dermatologist is a good start. This happened to a friend of mine, and the bald patch got to be about the size of a quarter. Turned out it was alopecia areata. It went away, and the problem never happened again.
Do you have any new stress? That made some of my hair fall out. Also, unhealthy eating habits could cause that to happen. I'm not saying you eat poorly; I'm just throwing out options.
Sorry to interrupt this post. I was just wondering if you received my e-mail. I wanted to make sure I sent it to the correct address! Thanks.
My daughter had bald patches like this(she had 2)when she was about 17 and doc said it can be caused by stress but it turned out she had pcos. They went eventually without medication. Always get it checked before you do any self help measures.

hi everyone, this is a first for me....but i found IT.... my hair has come out between my fingers in the shower so bad that i was afraid to even touch it. but no more... i have been researching alternative medicine for 18 years now...ever since they put my 11 month old on flagel and shut his kidneys&liver down 75%.... put him in the hospital and didn't want to tell me it was the antibiotic that was shutting him down.... just awful.... so....now i want to share with you my great discovery..... maybe its just me....but...after just 2 weeks on 1000mg daily of carnitine and wahlaa normal hair.
i do tend to stay on the acidic side, and struggle with toxins (for which my doctor said to take magnesium to bowel tolerance) and i know we all have our own biological differances... but god help all us girls, and guys too maybe
Try the carnitine....i did back off to 500mg after 2 weeks and then dropped to taking that dose 2/3 times a week the next month. good luck and spred the word brenda
life is tough enough without the wicked ol witch dropping in.... i suppose you will just have to handle it, but i do like the suggestion to get the legal system involved.... even if its just a police report.
with all that nervous energy, i think you better get ya some b-stress formula too....
hang in there
you and your dh have the same typing styles. he said on another post he smokes a lot of pot and he is trying to get you pg? interesting. and he wants to make his penis larger? i wouldnt let my kid stay with a mean woman and her pot smokin man. this sounds fishy
if you want your kid to live with you call cps on their drug use. if you are clean he will be with you in a flash.
i woke up this morning and found a HUGE bald spot the size of a half dollar.. i don't know what it is.. my eating habits haven't changed. i've been on the same bc pills for 2 and a half years. i just finished school and i'm starting up a business. i don't know if you could call that stress. but what i'm stressing out about is that there's a huge bald spot on my head. i have tied my hair up to hide it but no matter how much i hide it, i know it's there. it must've been a problem i've had for a little while because when i woke up there wasn't a clump of hair on my pillow. not much fell out in the shower.. i honestly don't know what it could be. my hair's very long. down to my belly button when i pull it forward. it's not too too thin but it's not thick either. my mom said that my uncle had this before and that it went away over time. but my uncle's always had a buzz cut. it's very different for a female to go bald at the age of 20 (21 on the 14th of this month) and someone who had it when he was in his mid to late 30's.. please help..
I was reading into everyone's posts...... Not that I'm happy for all IN ANY WAY- but I guess I'm a bit relieved to hear it isnt just me.(26 yr old female) Last night I found a large bald spot on the back of my head..... I'm under a ton of stress, however, this stress has been quite worse in the past. I noticed last week while showering that a BUNCH of hair was coming out, I didnt think too much into is, seeing's how its summer, kinda figured I would shed some of my 'winter coat' :-D unfortunately everytime i run my fingers through my hair, it just comes out like crazy. Now, I dont even wanna touch my hair!!!! Anyways, I've never been through this before I'm quite worried about it, my 8 yr old daughter thinks I'm dying :-( I saw above in the posts the different types of medicine's and what not, so basically do i go the my DR? Does anyone know or have an idea of what this problem is? will it go away? Can anyone help reassure me with ANYTHING???? Please, thanks everyone
i WENT TO HAVE MY DAUGHTER DIE MY HAIR AND SHE FOUND A 2 BY 3 IN BALD SPOT ON THE BACK OF MY HEAD. i AM FREAKING OUT. I WILL GO TO THE DOC IN THE AM. DON'T TRUST THEM BUT I NEED HELP!
Since fall 2008 I was losing my hair. At first it was small nickle sized patches of hair that fell out. One month after my hair stylist discovered my first bald patch I passed two (painful) kidney stones. During the first year of suffering I feared going to the doctors for two reasons. First I had no health insurance and I don’t believe in buying into anything I can’t pay back immediately; secondly, I new they would only offer drugs – a steroid they inject into you scalp or taken orrally that only covers up the symtoms and not cure/reverse the actual problem.
In June 2010 I had about a fourth of my hair gone, just enough to look amazing on my wedding day. But within three month of that I had lost two thirds of my hair (probably more). I looked very sick and fell into a depression, and my loving husband allowed me to shave my head so that it would boost myself esteem in the fact that I had control over how I looked, being bald was a choice and I wouldn’t look sickly. This helped my depression for sometime.
In January 2012 everything went down hill, I was almost bald, no eyelashes, no eyebrows, very little body hair and became more stressed out then I thought I could ever be. We ate fairly healthy foods with occasional fast food. Nothing I could do would help.
Then in Feburary 2012 my husband who listens to the Live show of Alex Jones everyday mentioned Dr. Wallach and thought we might check it out, just to become healthy. We ordered the Healthy Brain and Heart Pack to try it out, got instant results from the Beyond Tangy Tangerine and decided to see his seminar here in Bloomington, MN not even considering that Dr. Wallach could help with my alopecia until we got there. We listened to his amazing lecture and at the end he started taking questions. Being nervous with the possibilty that he couldn’t help I put my hand up. (Earlier in the lecture Dr. Wallach had asked if we had a dog, and we talked about how if I fed my dog Sadie human food she’d die.)
(***)To nervous to ask the question I just said “I have Alopecia”. He went through the list of Celiac disease symptoms and I had all of them, then he told me I was a celiac and needed to cut Gluten (Wheat, Rye, Barley and Oats) he was going to put me on the Healthy Start Pack but since I was such a severe case he said to take the Healthy Brain and Heart Pack (thankfully that’s the one I started on three days before the seminar).
In the first week the pattern of my hair falling out and growing back stopped. Nothing fell out. Now it is hard to go gluten free but with gluten free speghitti and hotdogs I managed the first week then expanded from there. Hair was growing in the first two weeks, it was amazing but I couldn’t get my hopes up because this and happen in the past with my condition, after a month I had most my eyebrows and eyelashes, hair on my head was baby hair (thin white hair). After two months more hair kept growing, now 6 months later my body hair and the hair on my head is in full force. All the hair on my head has returned, I feel better than I ever have… All the anxiety and depression is gone my hair is back! And I look GOOD!
Hope I helped others! Take care.
