I’m a 47 year old female. About 7 months ago, I noticed a thin spot on right side hairline, then a few months later, the left side seemed thinner too. It is the area underneath, temple up to the sides of my widow’s peak. It seemed to occur rapidly because last summer I had full hair there. I’m so upset. I don’t know if it’s from my father or hormones. I have had no prior hair loss. I don’t know when it will stop or if I need Mixoxidil. I’m taking stinging nettle and pumpkin seed oil. My thyroid seems ok but I have not checked my iron levels because it resembles male pattern hair loss. I wonder if it’s too much DHT. Please help.
Don’t assume anything. I would see a dermatologist or a hair expert like me. You must rule out diseases that cause spotty hair loss. Doctors with expertise can make this diagnosis when examining you.
