Patient :Hi, I am 14. I didn't born with a lot of hairs. I have been noticing that my hairs that fell off, usually got an white dot at the hair root, sometimes big, kinda like dandruff, sometimes really tiny. But the big ones can be pitch off by fingers easily. I am not falling out a bunch of hair for a single day, but it just feels weird. Also some of my hairs are thin for some reason, specially on the tip of my forehead, is that TE? This whole thing is going on for a while. My family said its normal, but I am still kinda worry about it. My mom and dad at mid-ages doesn't have a lot of hairs, but they are not bald. By the way my hair whorl is a little obvious, is that caused by some sort of disease? Point: what is all these things? TE or what? I am looking forward to cure this. Thanks a lot.
Symptoms: White tip at the hair root, thinning hair.
