Hair loss and itching!

Hey there,

My names charlie and i'm a 29 year old female. For the past 4 months i have experienced hair loss and patches of baldness from the sides and back of my head.
It's distressing as i have not yet been diagnosed with anything despite seeing 5 doctors and a trichologist! I have tried ointments and have had my bloods done and a fungal scrapping and everything came back normal?! The one thing they did find was that my ferritin levels were low and i have been put on Florisene 3 times a day to promote hair growth :/ My hair is usually thick and very long, but i'm finding it harder and harder to hide the thinning away One specialist told me it was psoriasis and then i got told by another 3 docs that it was not psoriasis as it did not have the characaristics of it?!

So confused as i don't know where to go from here and was wondering if anybody out there was goin thru the same as me.

Thanks adam for your reply, just confused as they have since said that it is not psoriasis However it itches and i can see flakes where the hair is thinning and where there are bald patches.
