Dear Dr.,

I am 23 years old and have had full thick hair my whole life. Recently when I was washing my hair I felt a bald spot on the back of my head close to the top of my neck. It is about the size of quarter. I have no other bald spots on my head nor is my hair hair thining anywhere. I have gone to get blood work done, and the have checked everything from my thyriod to the female horomone levels. Everything has come back normal except for my white count which came back at 13, which is just a little high. They still cant figure out what is going on. what do you think could be possibly going on?

Infection (ringworm) and alopecia areata are just two examples of diseases that can produce what you’re seeing. You need to see a good, competent, and caring dermatologist.
