About 12 months ago I was attacked from behind and during this I had a very large amount of hair ripped out, the largest patch being approx 5.5” by 6”, along with several smaller patches. The hair that was pulled out was pulled out in clean lumps, the scalp was smooth and not stubbly at all. At first, the doctors feared, that due to it being smooth, all of the roots had been pulled out and the hair would not grow back. Thankfully, the majority of the hair started to grow back about 4 months later, although some patches have never grown at all.
The hair that has grown, was really weak and fluffy at first but got stronger after a little while, it is now about 3 inches long. During the last 3 months I have had awful trouble with sore, irritated scalp, scabs forming in the area that the hair was removed, and short sharp shooting pains and the feeling of the hair actually coming out again.
This last month, the hair has started falling out again and I am starting to get large bald patches again, but also in different areas on my scalp than that was pulled out. My hair has gone really thin and horrible all over and I can feel my scalp through the hair that is left. Please please please can someone give me some advice as I really don’t want all of this to fall out again and some advise on how I can make my hair stronger. I have tried speaking to my doctor but he is overall very unsympathetic and is unable to offer me any guidance at all to help. I know stress can aggravate this but I cant help but panic when I am 23 and nearly bald.
Thank you in advance
