Patches of no hair on face (anybody?)

About 3-4 months i started to notice that my beard/no shave look was having a bald spot appear on it. It is a small but noticable spot (only on my beard) where hair does not grow at all. Now it has gotten alot larger and I am having more spots show up only on my beard. No where else on my face at all. It is a completly bald area and hair does not show or grow at all. I can grow a full beard and I am having to shave everyday and it is getting embarrassingly noticalble. Has anyone ever had this problem or does anyone know what is causing it or how I can stop these bald spots only on my face/beard??????

Also I am only 21 yrs old and pretty healthy.

You might have some damaged or plugged hair follicles (sp?). I have seen this type of thing on some men's legs, it looks like they are hairy, but then you seen the hairless patches. Makes ya wonder.....

Certain dermatological conditions can cause this. See a dermatologist just in case.
