Hi Dr Rassman
Im a 18-year old boy having male patterned hairloss. I started balding when i was 16 and am a full norwood 3. Since the last year a have felt some tingling feeling when i run my hand trough my head,all of it except on the sides. I dont feel pain nor do i have some disease of what i know but just the tingling feeling. Its like i know what my hairloss pattern will be a (norwood 6) wich i can tell from the feeling.I have looked trough the internet to see if anyone has experienced the same thing and interestingly alot of people have. I was wondering if you heard about this? And if you have please tell
Tingling on the scalp does not mean you will lose hair. While people who are balding may experience these symptoms, people who are NOT balding also experience these symptoms (they just don’t write about on the Internet hair groups). You may consider dandruff, head lice, scabies, or other conditions (not related to hair loss). Or you may having nothing at all! I really can’t say what you are experiencing, but you may want to see a doctor if the problem persists.
