Patient: Hi, I’m 16 years old and my hair is falling out at an alarming rate. It actually started when I was 13 and over the years its become 3 times as less. I never dyed it before except recently (I bleached the bottom a couple times,not the roots, and after a while got tired so dyed it dark brown again but this was very very long after the hair fall problem stated so i don’t think its that significant). My mom has REALLY thin hair and shes like 53 (I think) and my dad is like 60 something and hes bald all around except the bottom areas. I do have a lot of stress but I don’t know if that is the sole cause, because I also have eczema so I’m not a doctor but I think it could be relevant. I’ve been to many and NO one has taken it seriously I swear I feel like I’ll be bald by 20. Also I’m young so I’m really worried because its not normal hair fall its BAD. The picture below doesn’t show it fully, but it’s all I have and in reality I have several bald spots and an extremely visible scalp.
Symptoms: Oily scalp, occasional itching
