Scalp flaking and scabs on head
ive been losing my hair for a while now....first started noticing about a year ago. have lost the temples and think my hairline is higher although ive always had a somewhat high hairline lookin at older pictures. ive been shedding tons and tons of hair over the past couple months and its thinning all over the top (diffuse thinning)
now, i didnt want to put this in the hair problems cuz it could be a skin problem too. i had been seein lots of flakes in my hair and on the ends of hairs that fell out. suspected it was dandruff and thought i could have seborrheic dermatitis so i started using nizoral shampoo. i think the flakes i am seeing are actually dead skin and not dandruff
just recently ive noticed on my forehead scab-like developing around the temples and hairline on the left side. my skin is also literally peeling off on my forehead. my face (cheeks, chin, nose) have gotten extremely red too and ive tried various products that have done nothing (aloe vera gel, vitamin e, eucerin). i still get ocassional acne breakouts too and im 23 and never really had a problem with acne before.
went to the doctor a couple weeks ago about hairloss and because ive suspected i might have a parasitic infection. she said it might be yeast build up and gave me a cream that is used to treat ringworm. the doctor didnt say anythin about my hair loss and pretty much ignored me in regards to that.
had blood tests done too when i was there...havent heard back yet about the results
