I am 23, high sex drive male & been working out for past 2 years. No hair loss what so ever, acne, pimples or anything. But for past 6 months I’ve been away from gym due to frequent traveling and now I’ve high acne, excessive hair shedding to an extent that you can see my hair all over the house and family really wants me to stay away from their stuff because it will get “polluted” with my hair. My temple regions are totally bald now but what concerns me more is bald area on left side is roughly double in size to right.
Please devise you opinion on my condition. I have a feeling that sudden acquittal of weight training has cause my hair loss since all that free test. Wasn’t being consumed for muscle building. Also my scalp itches a lot sometimes.
I don’t think stopping weight training can cause hair loss. Many bodybuilders experience hair loss after they use anabolic steroids. It is likely that your hair loss has a genetic source, but there are other factors that can accelerate the speed of losing hair. When people lose hair from genetic causes, it is not unusual for the loss on one side to be further advanced over the other side. Coincidence of increased acne and rapid hair loss makes me suspicious of the possibility of increased androgen in your body. Androgen can have an external or internal source. If you use anabolic androgenic steroids, you need to stop them. If you have not used any of those steroids recently you need to see your doctor for further evaluations.
