im 26 years old male but have been loosing my pubic hair and my head hair at a very bad rate since i was 16 years old. now at the age of 26 its getting obvious that you can see my scalp and my pubic hair has thinned as well. I had very very thick hair. other parts of my body like my chest hair seem to be dropping, but not as bad. When I shower or just run my hands through the pubic hair it just drops at least more then 10 strands sometimes, and my head hair is the same, dropping all the time. I have taken a blood test and waiting for results, what else should I do, can you please advice thank you. im desperate for help.
Head hair loss has been addressed extensively in this blog, almost every day. With regard to pubic hair and body hair, I would like to know what medications you might be taking. The problem with internet advice is that it is one sided, question to me (alone, often without supporting information) and no real opportunity for me to probe further for info. I often tell medical students that the best doctors can make 90% of the diagnosis without ever laying a hand on a patient — by just taking a good and careful history. My interest in helping people is why I became a doctor. Unfortunately, I won’t able to be much help here without knowing more first. Without two way communication, I can not take a careful history, which is why a visit to a good doctor’s office is what the practice of medicine is all about.
